Johnson Gets Mention

Granted, this is just in shorts, but Charles Johnson's gotten some mention lately. One internet source calls him the odds-on favorite to start at LDE. Of course, it's easy to be a young guy that looks good in OTAs. Johnson, a third round pick last year that got hyped up as high as a 1st pre-draft, was a junior when he declared for the draft and is realistically just now reaching physical maturity. He'll turn 22 July 10, actually.

But here's the thing - last time they were on the field, Tyler Brayton was still the guy starting. John Fox doesn't play young guys before they're ready. If Johnson overtakes the enigmatic Brayton at left end, great, but as of right now there's nothing more than rumors.
