    Brian Johnston Rocks his Pro Day

    ~I've had Johnston in my mock drafts going to the Jets in the 2nd day, 4th-5th rounds....wonder if this shoots him up to the third....or higher...after his impressive post-season game and metrics...1.51 10 yd and 4.66 for 6'5" 275 guy is amazing. simply amazing. and the shuttle...phew. smoking. he's a better athlete than Gholston or Long.....

    SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Gardner-Webb product Brian Johnston, a rising prospect for this April's NFL Draft, wowed scouts at his first workout Saturday.

    Working out at San Diego State for a handful of NFL scouts, Johnston showed exactly why he is one of the top defensive end prospects heading into April's annual draft.

    Measuring in at 6-foot-5, 274 pounds, Johnston ran his first 40-yard dash in 4.66 seconds. Johnston's 40-yard dash time would have been the fourth best at the NFL combine for defensive ends, and the best for any lineman weighing more than 260 pounds.

    Johnston's most impressive stat from the 40-yard dash came with a very strong 1.51-second time through the first 10 yards, an important time with regards to a players quickness. By comparison, Johnston's 10-yard split was the same as Arkansas' running back Darren McFadden turned in at the Combine earlier this year.

    Johnston pulled off an impressive 35-inch vertical leap as well on Saturday, which would have ranked second among defensive linemen at the NFL Scouting Combine - and best for a player of his size.

    The most impressive result overall, however, may have been Johnston's time in the 20-yard shuttle. He turned in a 4.18-second time, which is better than any lineman at the NFL's Scouting Combine. In fact, the 4.18-second time was faster than any running back at the event - with Illinois' Rashard Mendenhall the only back to match that time.

    "I felt really good after the workout," Johnston said. "The few scouts who stayed behind (after San Diego State's players finished) said that it was the best workout of the day, by far, and they were impressed. My agent (Baltimore-based Tony Agnone) told me Sunday that nearly every team in the NFL had called him after getting those results."

    Johnston says he has formal visits set up with at least six NFL teams in April, prior to he draft. He is scheduled to work out once more for scouts, with that coming on March 25 in Winston-Salem.

    I was going to take Brian Johnston but he got picked so I took Curtis instead, he's more of a LB then DE but I think he is going to put up some good numbers.

    I would love to see the jets draft Johnston, I think he would be great in the 3-4.
