Player Analysis: Rodrick Johnson

2, Rodrick Johnson, LB
So., 6-3, 260, Galveston (Ball), TX
Johnson may have turned the corner about the middle of spring practice as he started being all over plays instead of too often running himself out of plays. Credit the new defense or just the maturation of a young linebacker who was forced into playing time as a true freshman, but he is much better than he was last season. He still packs a big punch when he makes a tackle. He also proved to be a strong pass rusher coming from the middle linebacker spot.
