Micah Johnson just may be the biggest LB you'll see in 2005. He's also considered to be one of the best as Johnson has already earned his way on to some preseason national top 100 lists. As a LB in 2004, Johnson tallied an amazing 174 tackles, four sacks and one interception. He doubled as a RB for Ft Campbell and rushed for 1,249 yards in just six games. There's no doubt that Johnson will be one of the most sought-after players in the nation this year and he's already racked up a dozen scholarships. If the Pack hopes to make a run, they'll need to add their name to the list in the very near future. Kentucky may hold an early advantage as Johnson's brother, Christian, is an OL for the Wildcats.
