Rod Johnson Named To Lombardi Watch List

Florida State left tackle Rod Johnson has been named to the Lombardi watch list.

Florida State left tackle Rod Johnson was a freshman All-American last season after making just five starts protecting Jameis Winston's blind side. This year Johnson is the most experienced lineman on the Florida State roster, and is expected to be one of the top offensive linemen in the country. The people behind the Rotary Lombardi watch list, which is given to the nation's best offensive lineman, defensive lineman, or rush linebacker, agree with that sentiment and have placed him on their watch list.

According to Johnson graded out with an average 82.2 during his five starts last season. That was on par with All-Americans Tre Jackson and Cam Erving. With Johnson expected to start for the entire season, and the high caliber of play he's shown so far, Johnson could end up as one of the best offensive linemen in Florida State history.
