    Nope, my guess is he would/could be slipped to the practice squad without an issue.


    His off the field issues are related a theft of a car stereo and a half smoked joint from his younger days.
    Quick google will find a few links on it if you want.
    A lot of teams made offers to him after the draft... we forked out the most $.
    Been out of the mix for a few days.
    How much and by whom?

    Seriously, this cat went undrafted and most in this thread are talking about him like he was a first or second round pick.
    He was considered a possible 3rd round pick, his stock just dropped off.

    I can't remember exactly how many teams contacted Johnson, but I think I remember reading 11 teams were reported interested in him

    Sorry I was wrong, it wasn't 11 teams thats contacted him... it was 18.

    The running back went undrafted this past weekend and, after hearing from 18 NFL teams Sunday night, signed with the Vikings and will participate in the team's rookie minicamp starting Friday at Winter Park.

    I don't have any of my draft stuff with me, all at home (go figure) but when he was added to the roster I don't remember seeing his name very high in any of the stuff I had.

    Could have missed it though as I really focused on his off field issues and the convo he had with the chiller about it/them.

    Again, might have missed it however, I am sure I would remember getting a UDFA that was ranked/rated as a 3rd round pick.

    Most places projected him as a 5th/6th round pick after his senior year, but still was considered a possible 3rd/4th by a few analysts. Either way, being contacted by 18 of the 32 NFL teams after the draft says something.

    Not picking bleed but that can be taken 2 ways.......

    a.
    He made the team and really didn't do anything.

    b.
    He made the team and was stellar.

    Which stance is it?
    I kindof was let down after all the hype Erin CSA'rs pushed out at us last year this time to the point I was glad the staff went out and addressed the position in the draft this year.
