    Jaymar Johnson Exceeds Troy Williamson



    For those of you unfamilair with our newly added weapon Jaymar Johnson, he was drafted in the 6th round out of Jackson St. He's not a big guy standing 6' 175 but he possess great speed and explosion, he runs crisp routes and he has great hands. In his interviews he expressess great intrest in specail teams practicly drooling at the thought. This was a comment in regards to specail teams: “I don’t even look ate it (playing special teams) as giving me an extra edge,” Johnson explained. “I just love special teams and I’ve been that ways since I started playing football. Special teams is called ‘special’ for a reason. I love it. That phase can lose a game for you or it can win games for you. I love special teams and I’m not juts saying that to be politically correct. I have a passion for it.”

    An observant Sidney Rice had this to say: “I think he’s excellent coming in and out of his breaks. He has great feet and great quickness, so I think he’s going to be alright. He has great speed and he’s a good route runner; I’m looking forward to big things out of him.”

    Jaymar brings a nice attitude and not stop work ethic to the table, he's a naturaul football player and his mind set is night and day compared to Troy Williamson. He's also the last remaining seed from Randy Moss. One reporter said he hadn't seen speed like Jaymar's since Moss left. Jaymar's timed 40 at the combine was in 4.47 range but looks to me like he runs in the 4.38-4.4 range with room to improve. At the combine he was a top perfromer in the 3-Cone Drill and the 20-Yard Shuttle showing his quickness, he also ranked highly in the 60-Yard Shuttle showing his long speed.

    I'm hoping he brings some much needed explosion to the return game, Allison did a fine job during his time but IMO this dude is on another level when it comes to open field elusiveness and the knack. With time in our weight room I see him building up to 185 the same weight as Bernard Berian but one inch shorter. His impact on specail teams should be immediate and with time he should be a sharp weapon at WR. I expect him to impress in Camp and make the final roster.

    This first highlight is a new one posted a few weeks after the draft. I had to watch it couple times to locate him on all plays. If you dislike silly rap mute it.

    Re: Jaymar Johnson Exeeds Troy Williamson

    Thanks TW.


    I really like this kid.
    Problem is I just can't see him making the squad unless someone goes (hopefully Ferg) as the staff to date, hasn't carried 6 WR's on thier initial 53 man roster.


    My guess is they will put him on the practice squad and then activate him if/when the OL straightens out a bit or they have another roster spot open.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Dude, don't be throwing out Allison just yet...he ALSO was one of the fastest at his combine in the shuttle drills and in the 40.
    PLUS he is much taller and has already proven that he can play some at the pro level.
    I'm sure that Jaymar may also prove his worth and may quite possibly even surpass Allison...but to call it already a done deal that he will be better is just reaching right now.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Mr H.,







    When I first looked at the picture I thought exactly the same thing in
    my mind.
    " God He Looks a hell of alot just like Randy Moss, from the side....







    I think we are in for some good battles in Camp this Pre-season and the WR's position is going to be one of the main ones....









    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    My guess is they will put him on the practice squad and then activate him if/when the OL straightens out a bit or they have another roster spot open.
    He won't be cut, but if he is some other team is likly to grab him just like Kanasas City did with Thigpen. From my understanding in order to make it to the practice squad there is waiver period in which another team can put that player on the active squad giving him an oportunity.

    Furgeson might be the guy to go, I do like him though cause he's a solid run blocker and he's one of our more physical WR's. IMO it would be a mistake to let Jaymar hit the waiver wire, he's got to much potential and he's already polished. He's ready to contribute right away on specail teams.

    If it came between the two for the final cut I would choose Jaymar because he brings more to table when it comes to playmaking ability and we need that at Punt Return. With our defense our Punt Returner is gonna see significant opportunties. He can score anytime he touches the ball, and I would be willing to best he's our most exploive WR in terms of return ability.

    haha alright good i'm glad you guys thought so too, i wasn't sure if it was just me.
    Its kinda ironic that he looks like him.. and we got him more of less thru the Moss trade.

    Dude, I'll have you read my previous quote: "Allison did a fine job during his time but IMO this dude is on another level when it comes to open field elusiveness and the knack." I'm not out to kick Allison out of the door, I believe he's a good WR with great explosiveness off the line of scrimage, he's able to get open and does a fine job getting in and out of his cuts. He's not as smart as Jaymar Johnson but he likes football and he has a chip on shoulder. I also like his size but I don't believe he has the true knack for returning like Jaymar. He's not much taller maybe 1-2 inches, the difference is Jaymar hans't had his chance yet, Camps will give him that oportunity and then preseason. Again I never said anything was a done deal but Jaymar making the 53 man roster.

    Q: At your age, can you handle a full season?
    A: I m 37, number one. I took my family to Perkins a couple of days ago, and they didn t hand me a senior citizens discount card, so I feel pretty good.
