Draft 2009

Pick Analysis: Johnson was quietly being touted by scouts before the 2008 season as a breakout candidate. After all, 2008 first-round pick Jonathan Stewart's emergence only came after Johnson suffered a season-ending torn right ACL in the sixth game on 2007. Johnson's shoulder popped out of its socket against Utah State after only one 37-yard carry, however, making scouts wonder if he was injury-prone. But he played in every game en route to 2008 second-team All-Pac 10 honors, gaining 1,201 rushing yards, scoring 13 touchdowns and averaging an outstanding 7.1 yards per carry. Had an arm span of 30 3/4 inches and a hand span of 9 1/4 inches at the combine.
