Take
This isn't a surprise as we predicted they would look to select him--but probably in the second round. We've chronicled for some time that the team wasn't happy with RB Chris Henry and that they were going to select a speedy back likely in the first two rounds. Johnson not only is looked at as the fastest back in the draft, he's about as close to Brian Westbrook as there is in this draft.
