    Maybe Johnson goes higher - but Lewis was had around #20.

    Yeah but Lewis (who went 26th) had off the field issues, just like Randy Moss (who went 21st). Derrick Johnson comes from a family full of preachers & teachers and has never had a single off the field problem while he was on the 40. Add that to the fact that DJ has as much upside as any LB drafted in the past decade and he's a guaranteed Top 10 pick (most likely Top 5).

    I want the kid and all impact LB's welcome. Either way we may be poised to cash in on him at 5 or 15.

    The guy is a player and would be a good marketing decision as well because of his Texas roots. With as many forced fumbles as he has created, he would be a difference maker for us.

    No this is not a problme

    DJ Johnson is a freak of nature of size and speed at LB and he does makes plays but he also has a tendency to over persue and can be had on cut backs etc in the game plan.

    I am not saying he does not make plays but the over pursit in the NFL can be magnified more than in college.

    That is why he is sitting where he is on the draft charts. How much is that coaching and how much of it is not having great instincts and with Texas history under Mack brown of not getting the most out of his players it maybe coaching.

    Just imo on DJ

    I have watched every single play by Texas this year and I can count on one hand the plays where DJ overpursued or was caught out of position. Last year that was a good-sized weakness on his part but I attribute that more to poor coaching by former DC Carl Reese. Ever since Robinson took over though, he has emphasized film study session after film study session to make DJ as intelligent of a player as possible. The dividends have been outstanding, as Derrick (who has always been the emotional leader of the Defense) recognizes many plays almost immediately which has allowed for him, and sometimes his teammates, to be right where he wants to be.
