ACC commissioner John Swofford said he expects the revenue gap between his conference and the Big Ten and SEC to close once the ACC Network launches in 2019. "That's why we're doing the channel," Swofford said. "We fully expect a gap with particularly the Big Ten and SEC here for a couple of years but that's the very reason we've signed to do what we're doing. We fully expect that gap will narrow considerably when we get the channel up and running."

Third-round pick John Johnson said he "knew there was a shot" the Rams would draft him, "but I wouldn't say they were on me hot." How does he see himself? "I think I fit best as a safety, although I think I have a corner body type. I came into Boston College as a corner. I like covering man-to-man, and I like covering zone."
