You may want to re-think that. For sure
you would have Johnson in on passing downs, but he would attacking
the defense 5 (10?) times more than blocking. You don't pick an RB with pass catching skills like that and not use him. Plus...and this is important...his coach said he missed only TWO blocking assignments in 3 years in college. He will stick his nose in there, he's just not someone you would ever use as a lead blocker.
However, I probably would not take CJ in Rd 1...just seems too high to me.
