Notes:
Was an All-American as a sophomore when he rushed for 1,713 yards and 25 touchdowns...Scored the game-winning touchdown against Oklahoma on New Year's Day in 2007, one of the most memorable plays in recent college football history...Saw his workload decrease over the last two seasons which may be a good thing, as he is sure to have spared his body somewhat...A mature player, a winner and a leader...Sees the field well and is able to spot holes as they open...Runs very hard and isn't afraid of contact...Catches the ball well and can help an NFL team in that area...Has shown the ability to make tacklers miss in space...Has adequate speed for the position...Some question whether the tremendous production Johnson exhibited in college was a result of Boise State's wide-open offense and the questionable opposition that the team faced...Has had significant injuries during his career, so durability is a concern.
