Great agility and shows good burst off the snap. Reliable tackler, plays smart, and makes those around him better. Raw prospect (developmental) and needs to work on lower body strength, but has the measurables and potential you look for in a player at this position. Could go as late as the 7th round.

The waiting drove me mad....
I don't want to hear from those that know...

lol 7TH ROUND, SORRRY, DON'T THINK SO.
He will not make it to the 5th. I think he falls into the list of most underrated players in the draft.

Antonio Johnson - 6030, 310, 5.21, Mississippi State

Has just about everything you look for physically and does everything reasonably well. Displays flashes of brilliance and can be almost dominant at times. Still has lots of upside.

Antonio is very athletic with excellent quickness to work off blocks to get to the ball. He stays low and plays with solid leverage and is very solid versus the run. Occuping multiple blockers then able to sheds the blocks and disengages well. Good on the move and makes plays all along the LOS. Gets penetration using a quick first step and uses his hands well as a pass rusher. Good interior pass rusher with solid lateral mobility. Versatile, tough, physical and hard working. great size and the frame to get a little bigger yet.
Still raw and needs technique work, two years at Mississippi Delta Community College. Lacks any standout traits Instincts and awareness are questionable. Slow to read and react to the play. He's not stout at the point of attack and can be run at. Plays too high at times and is on the ground a bit too much. Can lose leverage and get washed downfield. May be best suited as a run stopper in an attacking up field scheme.

Only reason I said "could" go as late as the 7th, is that Scouts Inc. had him projected to go there. I don't believe he will, but then, it's hard to project. He's underrated, but not perfect.
