Quinn Johnson FB 6'1 251 LSU

By: Robert Davis

Johnson began his Tiger career as a linebacker, where he played as a freshman before shifting to offense in 2006. The stable of backs at LSU during his career has limited his ability to touch the football. He had just one carry for six yards in 2006, then did not get a single carry as a junior in 2007. This year he did run for 28 yards and three scores and caught two passes for 33 yards.

Strengths

Johnson does the things that donít show up in the box score. He is a very good lead blocker. He has tremendous bulk, power, and will drive defenders out of the way to clear a running lane for his back. He showed potential as a playmaker at the Senior Bowl. He was a load between the tackles and could be a valuable short yardage back in the NFL, and flashed some receiving ability as well. Johnson has a lot of experience on special teams, a trait that will definitely help him in the NFL.

Weaknesses

The rushing and receiving ability are not very developed. He didnít get many opportunities to show them and shouldnít be counted on to provide much in these areas initially in the NFL. He is a true lead blocker, and many teams donít employ that any more, limiting his opportunities to find a team.

Future

Johnson has always been a quality blocker, but showed something extra at the senior bowl. He will not be drafted on his ability with the ball in his hands, but it is something that could come along and be an extra boost to the team that selects him for his blocking ability. He doesnít play a glamorous position which places his stock as a mid to late day two guy, but he has the potential to make an impact in the NFL.
