I said weeks ago this guy is a joke. I took him off my list after the second Bama game I watched. He is horrible. I cant beleive people who have watched him play are still talking about him. I watch Bama every chance i get to see Rolondo McClain, Arenas and Cody. When they are on offense I cant help but watch #78 Johnson. I always come away very unimpressed.

He would never make it under Gibbs. He just doesnt hustle enough and he doesnt have a killer instinct.

I'm not a big fan of him either. When he was forced to slide outside last year against Utah he was dominated by what should be viewed as lesser competition. The O-line for 'Bama also has not been that great this year without Andre Smith. Smith was easily one of the top 3 talents in the entire draft last year. Easily. He made that line dominant, and his absence was obvious in their bowl game. He wasn't a top player, but man he was just blessed. Johnson wasn't quite as lucky.

Thanks guys. When I watch Alabama he did nothing to impress but he is rated as 3rd OG on sites. Of course those are usually weeks old. I am liking me some Jon Asamoah, but I can't work in what I want in top 3. I want a Pwr Back (Dwyer or Gerhart) but think both will be gone by our pick in 2nd and Asamoah will not make to our pick in 3rd and I want a CB to replace DR. Sigh! Haden @ #15, Asamoah in 2nd and Gerhart in 3rd would please me but don't see Toby dropping that far even if Smithiac would draft him.

You never know about backs like Toby in the draft. Seems like every year there is similar backs to him that fall way later than expected.

Peyton Hillis, Michael Bush, Frank Gore, Brandon Jacobs, Greg Jones, Michael Turner were all big backs that lasted until the 3rd round or later. I know Toby is tearing it but if he doesnt run well at he combine he could drop. Ive seen reports that he runs in the 4.6's. If that is true he will drop.

Man I still wish we would of drafted Hillis.

I had mentioned Hillis is draft discussions as a viable option mid second day. With McFadden & Jones stealing the limelight, he got limited touches @ Arkansas but when exposed showed to be a downhill, no nonsense runner.

With surprising speed and agility for a guy his size. I was shocked he lasted past the 3rd round.

After last draft and both Smith and Smith saying a dire need was to improve running game prior to draft, it would not shock me if a back is not selected before 5th. If Brown stays healthy and runs like he did last Colt game, he might be re-signed. I am not certain anything would shock me from here out.
