Michael Johnson DE Georgia Tech #93

Ht: 6'7
Wt: 263

Ideal size and strength for a pass rusher. Elite athleticism. Good upper body strength. Impressive quickness. Potential is nearly limitless.
Very inconsistent. A lineman with Johnson's size, strength and athleticism should have been dominant throughout college. Instead, Johnson didn't win a full time job until his senior year and even then he failed to live up to expectations. Looks lazy on the field at times. Has a one-track mind; only wants to get to the quarterback. Gives minimal effort chasing down ball carriers. Tends to rely on his speed and hasn't developed an array of pass rush moves.
Purely based on potential, Johnson stands at or near the top of this draft class. Based on production, he's near the bottom. No player in this class had a bigger gap between his potential and what he actually accomplished on the field. Someone could take a chance on him in the early second round, but I would be hesitant to take a guy like Johnson before the third round. He reminds me of former Georgia DE Quentin Moses - a guy with all the talent in the world, but a lack of effort on the field and a poor work ethic never allowed him to reach his full potential.
