"[Dontae Johnson is] a tremendous athlete. A guy that's played nickel, corner, and safety. He understands the game and has a good aptitude."

"He's always a guy that I've felt has had the ability to play outside. We had to move him to safety dude to injury issues."

"Dontae is a tremendous athlete."

"I know he can play out there. More press teams, he's be really good in those systems, not that he can't play off because he can, but with his long arms he's good on the line of scrimmage with people."

"I don't think there's ever been a moment in football's history that people wouldn't want to have big corners. It's just the fact that there's a couple of [big corners] that got famous this year probably helps him."

"A lot of people like his versatility. I think the way he ran helped him."

"One of the guys I was talking to said Asa did really well during the testing so the position work will be really important."

"Hopefully some of the guys improved themselves."

"When I was at Kansas we had Aquib [Talib]. Aquib was a long corner. He played corner his entire career so he was able to grow at the position."
