Basic info about Micah Johnson



He was projected as a 7th rounder / UDFA this past spring.  He's 6-2, 255-260 and ran a 4.86.  Basic strengths as recorded:  1) good football instincts -makes a lot of plays between tackles; 2) big-time hitter who explodes through the ball carrier; 3) tremendous upper-body strength (AND THIS IS TRUE - JUST FIND A PICTURE OF HIM - I SAW ONE ON ANOTHER SITE - MASSIVE) Can hold his own against 300-lb offensive linemen; and 4) could be a great blitzing linebacker.  WITH STRENGTHS, COMES WEAKNESSES - 1) struggles covering running backs out of the backfield; 2) only 6.5 TFL in 2099.  A linebacker with his skills should have double-digits TFL; and 3) must improve changing direction.  (USA TODAY Magazine)

Bottom line - (Sporting News - for whatever their opinions are worth) Solid priority free agent signing due to his size and athletic skills.  He'll likely serve as a developmental player on a practice squad in his rookie season.

GUYS AND LADIES - all this means is  . . . . . . . NOTHING.  Review are just that - reviews.  High school is high school; college play is college play and now he's with the men.  He has solid coaches and everyone goes through a development phase.  He's a project, sure, but with the RIGHT COACHING, and his ability and commitment to play, he'll be a backup and hopefully, he'll make the team in some way - even if it's on the practice squad.
