Man the more I hear and read about this kid the more I think we may of found a gem as a UDFA. Not saying he will be a stud but I think he may end up being a very nice player for us.

Former Boise State tailback Ian Johnson put together another impressive workout Tuesday for NFL scouts at the Broncosâ€™ annual pro day.
Johnson, who has bulked up to 212 pounds, did not run the 40-yard dash because he posted a terrific time of 4.46 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine. He did do agility drills.
â€œHeâ€™s as big as heâ€™s ever been and moving as well as heâ€™s ever moved,â€ Boise State coach Chris Petersen said. â€œâ€¦ He looked fast and he looked powerful.â€
Johnson was one of 11 former Broncos to participate in pro day. About a dozen NFL scouts and a couple of CFL representatives showed up â€” a much smaller crowd than traveled to Ryan Cladyâ€™s workout last year.
Johnson plans to stay in Boise for the next month. He will watch the NFL Draft in California.
â€œIâ€™m not satisfied yet, because I still know there are a lot of things I can work on,â€ he said. â€œâ€¦ Now itâ€™s keep on the same path of helping myself every day.â€
He doesnâ€™t worry about draft position, he said. Heâ€™s confident he will make a team regardless.
â€œI will stick with a team once I get there,â€ he said. â€œOnce I get that chance, Iâ€™ll work until my second contract, third contract, fourth contract, until you kick me off the field. For me, itâ€™s just getting that first chance.â€
