Full Name: Marcus Johnson School: Mississippi
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 320 40: 5.36 Number: 76
2002: Started all 13 games at right guard.
2001: Fourth team Freshman All-American and selected to the All-SEC Freshman after starting 11 games at right guard.
The Good: Tough interior lineman effective as both a pass protector or run blocker. Explodes into run blocks, bends his knees and strong at the point. Immediately gets his hands up into opponents and controls once engaged in a block. Annihilates linebackers on the second level and anchors in pass protection.
The Bad: Lacks balance and the ability to play in space. Not effective laterally. Must learn to finish his run blocks.
The Skinny: Displaying continual progress, Johnson is a prospect that can be a force if given time to physically mature and improve his game. A nasty lineman, Johnson also plays with a good degree of intelligence and is one of the better prospects in what's turning out to be a bumper crop of underclassmen guards.
