The 94th-best player in the NFL — and one of the most reliable defensive players in the game — has joined the St. Louis Rams. Safety Quintin Mikell has agreed to a four-year contract with St. Louis, where he’ll try to help improve a run defense that struggled a tad in 2010.

He doesn’t really replace the departed O.J. Atogwe, because Mikell and Atogwe are obviously very different players, but the younger Mikell will be a safer player in the secondary.

The dude is underrated. In fact, Pro Football Focus rated him as the 28th-best player in in the NFL last season.
