    If we took him at twelve I wouldn't be pissed. Not who i prefer but would be a plug and play guy from the things ive read.
    seems like a quick lineman that would be good in a zbs and can easily get to the second level

    I would avoid QB's from Norman but OL is a different story.

    Johnson has to be fluid & athletic playing in that scheme. I could live w/ this kid @ #12 but would prefer Armstead (Ark -Pine Bluff w/ the pick rcvd for Vontae).

    Martin, Yeatman, and Johnson or Armstead at Tackle in 2013 is doable.

    He does have a knack for knocking his guy down with a punch. Its like he senses when they are off balance and bam!

    The thing for me about Johnson is he can play LT no problem. I am not big on Martin at LT as a starter. He got blown up vs. SF and NE. He wasnt as good as people say in the last quarter. He got better, progressed, but still had many issues and needed help vs. Aldon.

    Johnson may not be there at 12. If the teams in the top 10 don't overpay for QBs and instead take other need positions like OT, i could see a scenario where Joekel, Fisher and Johnson are all gone by 12.

    It may be quite possible to acquire both. Really

    Just look at the teams who need a #1 TE. The Giants probably lose Bennett to the Bucs in free agency, that is about as likely of a FA transaction as there is this year. He has said publicly he wantws to play with his brother and The Bucs have said openly they will be looking to sign a TE in FA and Bennett had a great year last year. The Giants have more holes this offseason than a golf course. They aren't using the # 19 on a TE.

    It's kinda sounding like Gonzalez is returning to Atlanta and the Falcons are going to have other serious needs like RB,pass rusher and perhaps LT and RG to deal with. Te will have to wait til next year or at least later on.

    The real threats are the Jets id they don't re-sign Keller and maybe the Rams in a trade up.

    If the Dolphins just traded up in front of the Jet's in the 2nd round there is a chance he would still be there; but, Fasano probably returns so a trade up is doubtful.
