Josh Johnson for QB?

From NFL.com, a review of the top 10 QBs in the draft.  Nice write up about this guy.

10. Josh Johnson, San Diego
Height: 6-3   Weight: 213
College stats: 34 starts, 9,699 yards, 113 TDs, 15 INT
Vital numbers: 4.55 40-yard dash, 4.42 short shuttle

I watched the Marist College game, which should tell you the level of competition Johnson faced in college. He was coached by Jim Harbaugh for three years, and has a good understanding of the pro-style offense. He can snap a ball off, and easily bought extra time in the pocket against the competition he faced in college. Last year without Harbaugh (who left to coach Stanford), Johnson threw 43 touchdowns and just one interception. He can throw off his back foot, which any NFL quarterback will tell you he will have to do at the next level. His speed and athletic ability would suggest he could play another position, but he sees himself as a quarterback. He threw 1,064 passes in college and has the skills to develop into a pro quarterback. A team such as the Patriots could draft him late and spend a few years developing his skills. Draft projection: Rounds 6-7.

Anyone else like him? Maybe with one of our comp. picks instead of spending a #2 or 3 this year?
