  • I like Michael Johnson and I'm not afraid to admit it

    Okay, first off I want to say I realize that he isn't an elite prospect. He has some major question marks and I don't view him as a top 10 pick by and stretch of the imagination.
    BUT I really like him. He is freakish (and the term is thrown around too much but he is one) and though he is inconsistent, when he turns it on he turns it on BIG TIME.
    He could fit in either a 34 or 43 and with some good coaching he could really excel at either IMO. If he finds himself in a good position with a solid team, watch out.
    For what his value is right now (early 2ndish) I think he is an absolute steal. I view him as a top 20 prospect.
    MJ definitely has come down with a case of 'so over-rated that he's now underrated'. I feel like no one else on the boards like him, so I wanted to see what your opinions are.

        +1.

        It reminds me of the Mathias Kiwanuka situation. Not overly similar as prospects, but their stocks both took dives in the postseason (unjustifiably so IMO).

            I think he can be legit with the right coaching. He is tearing it up, and lots of teams are working him out. Falcons, Redskins, Browns, Bucs included with the Bengals and Packers looking at him. He could slip into the late first still.

              I think he'd be terrible in the 4-3, but I think he might be able to be a stud in the 3-4 if a team limited what he had to do.

                I agree that in the right situation he could thrive. He was much more productive than he got credit for (9 sacks, 17.5 TFL, 46 tackles, 7 batted down passes, 3 FF, 1 Int). He had some of his best games against top competition. He is a physically unique player. With that being said, its frustrating watching the guy who shows the best first step in the draft to not explode off the ball like he's capable of.

                    A lot of people like him, just not as a Top 10-15 pick!

                      Yup, I like Michael Johnson, but I don't want the Broncos to use their first on him unless they trade down to the later first. But I think his upside is limitless.

                        Samuari Mike would whip him into shape.

                          I've seen people freaking out if he's pegged at a spot even in the late first. I'd be ecstatic as a Packers fan if we had to trade up (or down from 9) for him in that range.

                            I like him more than most but I can see his length really being an issue for him. It's tough to keep linemen off you when they have such a big target, especially since once somebody gets a hold of him it's over.

                            I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him in the 1st round, even mid-1st. I just can't picture him up at the top because you don't give "maybes" that much guaranteed money.

                              I've been a fan of him for ever. I'd spend Atlanta's late first on him in a heartbeat.
