The Texans draft watch series continues with a look at Virginia DE/OLB Cam Johnson.

Let there be no doubt about Johnson's athleticism. The former Washington D.C. area high school wide receiver and defensive back played two seasons at Virginia as an outside linebacker in former head coach Al Groh's 3-4 defense before being switched to defensive end when Groh was replaced by Mike London (and a 4-3 defense) in 2010.

By the way, if London's name sounds familiar it's because he was the Texans defensive line coach in 2005.

Johnson added some lbs. while at Virginia as he's now in the high 260's after entering college at 220 lbs. four years ago. Johnson is sometimes referred to as a 'tweener' and has retained much of his quickness from his lighter days but the more I see and read, I think the lean is toward 4-3 defensive end vs. 3-4 outside linebacker in the NFL.

Saw that earlier. Don't see the Texans drafting a possible health issue. Sounds like he could be a good rotational guy but I think Wade would want a guy he could keep out there longer if need be. JMO
