On the final day of the combine, Texas OLB Derrick Johnson helped himself with one of the most impressive LB workouts in years

So much for that idea! :cuss:

Too small for DE. OLB, but maybe only in a 3-4?

Wouldn't break my heart if we went to a 3-4. ACtually I prefer a 3-4. But we don't have the Dline for it. And most definitely don't have the
LB's. Trotter and Fujita though would look good in a 3-4.

"The final day of activities provided fireworks. Texas OLB Derrick Johnson was the "real deal" with one of the most impressive linebacker workouts in years, including a 4.54 in the 40-yard dash. Tennessee OLB Kevin Burnett and Southern Utah OLB Marques Harris put on a show of their own when they played a one-up-you game of gymnastics at the end of each of their position drill workouts.

Burnett started things off with a back flip at the conclusion of one of the rip drills. Harris elected to outdo Burnett with a cartwheel into a back flip. After the two exchanged blows once again, Harris sealed the deal with a cartwheel followed by consecutive back flips that left the entire audience -- including Burnett -- in awe of his athletic prowess. While the display had absolutely nothing to do with position-specific skills, NFL coaches and scouts were impressed. "

"Wallace sat out the 40-yard dash because of a hamstring pull and also had a tough day on the bench press, as he had the fewest reps (10) of all the linebackers who participated. Johnson (4.54), Demarcus Ware (4.56) and Robert McCune (4.50) had the three best 40-yard dash times of the day. While Johnson and McCune's times were impressive, it was Ware's that drew the most attention because it proved that the 6-4, 251-pound DE/OLB tweener has the speed to make a potentially huge impact as a perimeter pass rusher in the NFL."

No direct talk of Johnson's numbers outside of his 40 time, no mention of his bench in the following workout chart. I never thought he was a realistic choice anyways.

I have a sinking feeling the Browns take him.

The Raiders lost their 1st round pick right?

I wouldn't be surprised if you see Houston snag him.

Edited my post when I remembered the Fade traded their pick.

Cleveland needs defense and they have the #3 pick.

I am still wondering if CeePee can fanagle a deal to sign Surtain and then use him to trade up. Maybe I am dreaming.

Well I knew Johnson would be gone by the time we pick.

Now I'm just hoping that Kevin Burnett somehow slips to the 2nd.
