I love this guys athleticism but isnt the major concern of the Browns an O line? If they make some good free agent moves i would mind seeing him go to the Browns.

I don't think Johnson's thick enough to stand up at the point of attack. If his frame can handle 15 pounds without a speed loss he'll be fine (he's athletic and a playmaker), but he's not a great inside run-stopper and at #3, I think you need to be. He needs size.

He does have great speed and that awesome punch move, but I think at 3, that's a bit high. Still, if he performs at a level of a pick around even 10-12, then that's a huge improvement for the Browns.

you may be right. He probably could stand to gain 10-15 pounds which will probably happen in the NFL. I just think his tackling ability with that speed is damn impressive. At least he has the height, speed, and the smarts to play OLB effectively. He could be one hell of a speed rusher on passing downs. I remember the same negatives were thrown at Derrick Brooks when he left FSU and back then I think he was only about 225.

Definitely. The issue is just if he can gain that weight without losing any speed, which I can't accurately say. He looks a bit slim for his height and I think 10 pounds would be great, not because of the weight, but because of the strength. scUM's TE's were blowing him up all day.

As I said, I'm not sure he'd be worth the number 3, but if he plays indicative of a pick from 8-9, that's better than the Browns have done in years. It's all about the combine and workouts.. if he performs greatly (as I feel he will), he'll probably go high.

If they're taking a guy from Texas, please, let it be Johnson and not Rodrique Wright. I'd prefer Antrell Rolle, but PLEASE, not Wright.

Wright from Texas hasnt declared for the draft I believe.
Hopefully the Browns won't be in a market to take him next year. He was a big time prospect before the year and hasn't lived up for it. Not a huge fan, NEVER heard his name called for a great play in the Rose Bowl. He didn't impress me any of the other 3 games, either, that I saw Texas play.

I've always thought Antajj Hawthorne was a beast. Babineaux of Iowa has really played well lately.

Wright seems like more of a run stuffer. The Browns have to get rid of Roye's contract eventually. Maybe a DT should be drafted in the later rounds.
