Johnson made a huge splash at the two all star games he played in and went from a fringe free agent signee to a guy that has a legitimate shot at being drafted.
"I've heard that I could potentially go in the sixth or seventh round," Johnson said. "But if I go as a free agent that is fine. All I want is a shot."
Johnson has signed with agent Kyle Rote Jr., the former soccer star and son of the NFL great. Rote's agency deals with a number of high profile athletes including Scottie Pippen. He recently spent five weeks working out in New Orleans in an effort to get in top shape for NFL on-campus evaluations.
"It's been great," Johnson said of his experience with Rote. "It was great getting to work out in New Orleans."
He's now back in Tucson, working out with former Cat QB Keith Smith. The pair works out at Fit at the River, a local health club and have a trainer who put them both through the paces.
"We've been working hard," Johnson said. "Keith is back to full speed. The heel is fine and he's ready to go. We both want to get better."
