  • Could Georgia Techs Michael Johnson play OLB?

    http://www.ajc.com/sports/content/sp...n_pro_day.html

    Timed at a 4.59 at his pro day, and as low as 4.49...

    That's pretty dang fast for somebody his size. Think he could make the conversion to 3-4 OLB?

    He has great size as well at 6-7 266 pounds.

    yes I think he could make the transition. He certainly has the skill set. The problem is that this guy never performed as well as his athleticism suggests he should.

      Too True - The biggest fear is that he's just a work-out warrior. Too little playmaking to go along with his athletecism

        That's about the same as Jarvis Moss.

        He looks like he has stronger legs and core than Jarvis, but I would rather we use our first pick on Gibbert if Orakpo isn't available.

        Both of them have more upside IMO.

          He's a workout freak that hasn't been able to play up to potential. He has a high boom or bust factor and will probably be taken in the early 2nd based on potential.

          Looks like others beat me to it

            I would be okay with Johnson... in the 2nd round or later.

              On Sirius NFL radio they compared him to Vernon Gholston from last year, a workout warrior.

                  Mamula, Gholston, Lawson.....all busts.

                  Somebody will take him WAY too high and he'll be a bust.

                  Please let it not be Denver who takes him.

                    He could certainly fool people and be a fine LB but the Broncos can't afford any high risks in the first few rounds. Too many holes that will have to be filled immediately from the draft.

                      Gholston has been in the league for one year... I think he is allowed a lil more
                      time before he is labled a bust...
