UVA OT pegs Michael Johnson on best DEs he faced

Virginia OT Eugene Monroe gave up all of 2 sacks last season. One of those came against Georgia Tech, which is when I asked him for some of the best defensive ends he’s faced he was quick to mention Georgia Tech DE Michael Johnson.

“Michael Johnson and Derrick Morgan both from Georgia Tech,” said Monroe. “They were good pass rushers. Sapp from Clemson. He was an athlete. I had fun playing against him. But Johnson’s explosion, his first step was second to none. He’s just an athlete, a natural athlete.”

Johnson is forecast to be a second-round pick, but with freakish physical abilities he could change some minds here at the Combine later this week.
