If only the highlight video would show him picking up the blitz.....

But if our OL could make those holes and get him to the second level...... I'd like to see what he could do.

Some comments from JJ from Oregon live:

Quote:
"I think anybody, when you have a good season like I did and did everything right, it's your dream to hear your name called in the draft," Johnson said. "But after everything was over, we knew why they didn't call my name. Everything was put in perspective, and my future is in my hands."

Johnson's agent, Bardia Ghahremani, said his client went undrafted because of a medical flag NFL teams placed on him because of a shoulder injury from last season. It also didn't help that the 5-foot-9 Johnson ran the 40-yard dash in a mediocre 4.65 seconds at the NFL scouting combine.

"The powers that be in the NFL decided that it would be a safer bet to try and get him as a free agent than to draft him," Ghahremani said.

In the end, Ghahremani said, not getting drafted allowed Johnson to pick his team from among a few suitors. The Texans, both thought, presented the best opportunity.

"I feel as though this is a good team for me, a place where I can get on the field fairly quickly either on special teams or in the backfield," Johnson said.

Foster has a much better chance to make the roster than Johnson imho. Johnson doesn't take it up the gut, and Foster does. In fact prior to getting injured, Foster was given a 2nd round grade by the NFL advisory committee as a Jr. The guy has big time talent, but he isn't super fast. He was on my radar bigtime as we got into the 6th and 7th rds.

As for the young man from Liberty rumor has it (totally unsubstantiated) that he tested positive for juice (ie steriods). If true, that would explain his fall from grace and why nobody touched him until rd 7. Take that FWIW, it's just a rumor I heard. Nothing more and no link. This was something I heard.

I like Foster, too, being a SEC guy and all. But I've always liked JJ. It's a win win.

Regarding Johnson, He certainly has the stature and explosiveness to play effectively for us. If he's coachable, one of the strengths of the ZBS is that the reads are straight forward and can quickly be taught to backs. So, if he listens and adapts to the offense, he could be a player for us.... at least, he should be able to be affective in the zone stretch.
