Josh Johnson, QB, San Diego

Johnson has been a full time starter for San Diego University since his sophomore season. His most productive season was 2006 when he posted 246-371 for 3,320 yards with an impressive 34-5 TD-to-interception ratio. He completed 66.3% of his passes. He capped off his impressive career with a season for the ages. He passed for 2,988 yards with an impressive 43-1 TD-interception ratio. He also accounted for 72.6 rushing yards per game. He will play in the East-West Shrine Bowl game. Johnson is an outstanding athlete, he is fast (4.67-40) and agile. He has been playing in a pro style offensive system and is an intelligent player who has improved every year. He uses his instincts very well. He has good arm strength and a very impressive career TD-Int ratio. Johnson is a good decision maker, making plays all over the field. He has shown the ability to lead and is a quick learner. Although his level of competition is a concern as he did not face complex defensive schemes in college. He also needs to show more patience in the pocket and his footwork is a concern, so he needs to improve on his mechanics. Johnson is an extremely raw prospect who happens to have top flight talent. He did improve in each of his seasons playing QB. He had an outstanding East-West Shrine Game where he passed for 78 yards with a TD. He also rushed for 91 yards while earning the game's MVP trophy. He played very well against good competition. His performance at the game and the practices leading up to it had the effect of elevating his stock from a late rounder or even free agency, to either the fourth or fifth round area. He does have a world of talent and with some mechanical corrections, there's no telling how far he can go in the NFL. A true sleeper who has better ability and intangibles than Seneca Wallace when the former came out of Iowa State.
