Nico Johnson, ILB Alabama



From CBS Sports:

Strengths

Physically imposing defender with good overall musculature and weight distribution. Seems to enjoy the physical nature of the game, aggressively taking on and shedding blockers at the point of attack. Appears most comfortable inside, showing the ability to make subtle side-steps to slip into gaps and meet backs at the line.

Weaknesses

Isn't the intimidating striker that his physicality might lead you to believe. Doesn't play as fast as might appear in workouts. Limited awareness as a pass defender. Does not possess ideal speed or fluidity to handle coverage responsibilities for long.

Compares To: Bart Scott, ILB, New York Jets
A really solid, sound fundamental player, cant go wrong with a Saban coached LB. (McClain not withstanding) I cant believe a talent like this is available this late in the draft. Johnson would be an immediate upgrade over James/Dobbins and he's available in the 5th rd. WoW
