Overview:

Jeron Johnson is a player I really like in this years draft. He does have his limitations, size being a huge one, but I’ve always been impressed when I’ve watched him play. He has tremendous instincts and is a great run defender. He’s a guy that has the production but doesn’t have the size, as opposed to the guys that are athletic specimens but haven’t really displayed it on the field. He is at his best playing in-the-box but he doesn’t have the size you’d like. He has a lot of question marks but plain and simple, the guy can play.
