Johnson was arguably the best RB in the draft so they thought he could be a good fit to replace Holmes when he got older. Seems pretty clear to me
You have to remember that LJ is from Penn State. Who was the last RB to do good in the NFL from there? If I was the Chiefs I would have taken a chance on McGahee before I would have taken LJ. That way by the time Priest wants to hang 'em up Willis can be at full health and have practiced and step in. Instead they have to deal with LJ sitting on the sidelines criticizing the management and not wanting to be there. I don't think LJ has what it takes to be a good NFL back.
