    I don't get the chance to watch a lot of college football anymore, but I see Rashad Johnson is a fairly well rated safety, yet there hasn't been much talk about him that I've seen. He is intriguing to me because he seems like a good athlete who played in a good conference.

    What are the thoughts on him?

    I think he's a better fit for this defense than what Chung is.

    I think he'll end up being the best safety in this class. The big drawback is that he's too cerebral. I'll take that anytime!

    that's cause he's small. I can see him being like Bob Sanders(often injured) but better against the pass instead of the run like Bob.

    the scouts like him alot. Main strength DOESNT miss tackles, heady player. Interesting fact, you dont have to run as fast if you are in the right place.:cool:

    He is exactly the same size as Louis Delmas. Unlike Delmas, he dominated against much better competition and based on all I have seen and heard is better in coverage. He isn't as physical though. I still like him better than Delmas and Chung though

    I would not be sad at all if we got him. Anyone that works their way up from walk-on to potential 2nd round pick has got my attention.

    I love him, Cowboys don't appear interested, but then the Bennet thing was kept quite.

    Agreed. Teams will regret they pass on this guy.

    Well, that anonymous scouts article said he bulked up for the combine and only played in the 180s in college. That's like Newman size.

    That's awfully small, and he might have trouble keeping weight on during the season.

    Just devil's advocate. You have to like a guy with his guts and smarts, but can he tackle Brandon Jacobs?

    I think Rashard has a shot to be the best safety in this draft, especially in coverage/intelligence.

    He was a better college player than Roman Haper, (former Bama safety) who was a second round pick of the Saints and is a pretty good player now for the Saints.

    There's a lot to like about him. Saban said he knew his defense better than the defensive assistant coaches and almost as good as he (Saban) knows it.

    If we are looking for football players he is one of them in this draft. His size is a negative and he was a walk on, but he is always around the ball. Last season, Gary Danielson called him the best safety in college football and said he reminded him of Reggie Nelson.

    to be fair, Brandon will run over just about any safety

    We could draft Tim Tebow next yr and move him to safety. His sheer awesomeness would cause Jacobs to just fall down at the LOS.

    I doubt teams would even bother showing up.

    Tebow just has to stomp his foot into the ground and make all the offensive players fall over

    when he's on O, he parts defenses
