Gartrell Johnson/RB-FB/#5/5Sr: Johnson, the Rams primary ball carrier the past two seasons, comes off a career year as a senior. He's a powerful downhill runner who pounds opponents on the inside. Johnson's versatility as an effective short-yardage runner and blocker could secure him as a late-round pick.


Johnson set a Football Bowl Subdivision record for the most combined yards rushing and receiving in a postseason game, (375) although Fresno State's poor excuse for a run defense (allowed 197 yards rushing per game) has been shredded this entire season and Johnson actually got caught from behind on two long runs. I did a little research and it seems that this would reinforce the widespread opinion on him that he is too slow to be a RB in the NFL (scouts have him running the 40 in the low 4.7's!) and projects better as a FB / short yardage back. He came into the season with a fairly low free agent grade, but Johnson's strong senior season, versatility as a receiver out of the backfield, and blocking abilities have reportedly elevated him to latter round status on some draft boards. ;-D

What a load Shonn Greene is! Every game I watch him run, he is bowling over defenders and refusing to go down, carrying multiple defenders and using his excellent footwork to fight for extra yards.

In his Iowa black and gold, he is reminding of a certain someone...could he be the "Bus" of the next generation? :-b
