2011 NBA Draft Combine Coverage: Where Does JaJuan Johnson Fit in the NBA? - June 11

There are more than 14 NBA teams that have interviewed JaJuan Johnson. The talented power forward was one of the most accomplished and heralded players in Big Ten history, and his four years in West Lafyatte were extremely memorable for all the right reasons.

Not many Purdue Boilermakers excelled and excited on both ends of the floor like he did.

In order to make the transition to the NBA, Johnson hoped to show the scouts at the 2011 NBA Draft Combine...

"I think my biggest thing people question is my strength, the bench press and the strength and agility should put that to rest, depending on how I do," Johnson said. "I want to show that I'm stronger than how I look. I think a lot of teams know I'm a pretty good shooter."

Very true. All the questions surrounding him pertain to his size, weight, strength and ability to bang down low. No one questions his ability to step out and his the jumper.

Among the many teams he's worked out with are the Minnesota Timberwolves, Indiana Pacers (what an amazing hometown story that would be), and Miami Heat. Johnson has met with a myriad of teams including: Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Lakers, Detroit Pistons and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Johnson learned a lot by declaring for the NBA Draft last year and going through the process.

"I know what I got to do because I got a taste of it last year when I declared for the draft, so I know what to expect a litle bit, but I got to step it up another level," he said in Chicago during the combine.

Currently, we have Johnson projected at No. 37 to the Clippers in Round 2 of our 2011 NBA Mock Draft. Most mocks I've seen on the Internet have him projected in that same area. Quite a few have him slotted No. 36 to the New Jersey Nets.
