NAME: Wesley Johnson

POSITION: OT

CLASS: R-SR

HT/WT: 6-5, 295

OVERVIEW:

When the term "leader" was coined it was meant for people like Wesley Johnson. Johnson has not only been the top offensive lineman on the Vanderbilt team ever since he first stepped foot on the field, but he's been a leader on the O-line since his freshman campaign. Johnson, who has started every game since the beginning of his redshirt freshman year, earned honorable mention All-SEC honors last season after allowing no sacks. He has never been flagged for holding in three years of playing at Vanderbilt.

PROJECTION FOR 2013: Starter. This guy is versatile and could start at guard or center, and probably any other position on the team, if needed. You can bet that as a senior he'll make sure his team is bowling for the third straight season.
