AFC Championship: Charlie Johnson Audio

Colts offensive tackle Charlie Johnson will be one of the few rookies to play in Sunday's AFC Championship game.'s Ed Thompson talked to him this week about his experience -- and you can listen in on the interview.

When the Colts selected Charlie Johnson in the sixth-round of the 2006 draft, some undoubtedly assumed that he'd be a player that would take a few years to develop before he'd be ready to play in the NFL. You see, Johnson had only one year of offensive line experience before heading to Indianapolis. He was a tight end for Oklahoma State during all but his final season, but the Colts saw his raw talent and paired him up with offensive line coach Howard Mudd. And he's been one of the bright stars of this year's rookie class in Indianapolis.

Now Johnson will get the rare opportunity to participate in a championship game as a rookie. Find out what he had to say about that, the Colts' preparations this week and more during this exclusive interview with Ed Thompson that was recorded Thursday evening:
