ok, wtf? TWO Edge-rushers for the Redskins? Do you even know who is on the Redskins' roster? I was gonna comment after the first one, but decided not to. However, A SECOND EDGE-RUSHER? Preston Smith is quite good and only 23. The Redskins signed Kerrigan to a big contract extension. Clearly the top two spots are on lockdown. Question mark: Junior Galette. Can he return from a second torn achilles and provide a spark at DPR? We'll see, but he's more than just a journeyman edge rusher. Now, would it be nice to have some more depth? Sure, but that doesn't mean the Redskins should bypass their glaring needs at LG, C, and DL, GLARING needs, just to get DEPTH. Not a starter, but DEPTH. Safety, ILB, and RB. Just some more positions of need for you.
Sometimes tries to do too much in a one-and-one match-up off the dribble
Shot selection is questionable at times
Still a bit wirey and needs to add some strength
Summary: Johnson has been as good as advertised after transferring to Syracuse. If his season finishes as well as it has started, the lottery is in his very near future. He is already 22 years old due to transferring and spending a year at prep school, so it is very possible he will bolt for the NBA after this season.
Player Comparison: Shawn Marion. Johnson uses his length and athleticism to be a factor in every aspect of the game just like Marion did when he broke onto the scene in Phoenix. Johnson can score in numerous ways and also is a factor racking up steals and blocks on the defensive end. Johnson is a slightly better shooter than Marion and has a much prettier stroke.
