More than a feeling

I’ve told you before that for me, this year’s Roquan premonition has fallen on Jermaine Johnson.  From Jake Rowe’s practice report from yesterday comes this:

– Lastly, the outside linebacker were working on dropping into coverage and defending crossing routes while we were out there. I watched each of them go through this drill and it wasn’t Adam Anderson or Nolan Smith, the two guys you’d expect, standing out. It was 6-foot-5, 250-pound Jermaine Johnson. He’s really fluid in space for a guy that big.

Sorry, I’ve got to go find a napkin now to wipe the drool off my chin.

    You sure that’s drool?


  2. I was really impressed with Anderson coming out of HS because of his speed and the twitch factor he seemed to have. I hope that begins to show up this year. But first, he has to get on the field. Lots of competition at OLB.

    6’5′ 250? That’s about Lorenzo’s size is it not? I recall him making a few plays…

    Johnson is the one of the guys on defense I am really anxious to see play.

    That’s terrific news. I’d been assuming he’d be more of a rush only kind of guy. If he can play 3 downs, that’s a big deal.

    If he is 75% of the hype, he might be a one and done so enjoy it while it last.
