DELANO JOHNSON GETS HIGH MARKS AT NFLPA ALL-STAR WORKOUTS


CARSON, Calif. -- The first practice of the week in pads was the most physical and most intense of the NFLPA All-Star workouts.

The action was best in "The Pit," a drill matching offensive and defensive linemen one-on-one.

Some of the biggest programs in the country are well represented on either line, but it was the small-school prospect that made the splashiest plays.
 

The most physically imposing player on either roster was Bowie State University’s Delano Johnson. Johnson has a chiseled build and looks the part of an NFL athlete. Listed at outside linebacker, Johnson practiced primarily at that position but was also occasionally shuttled to defensive-line drills to try his hand at rushing the quarterback. He showed speed but at the request of coaches resorted to attacking blockers with explosive upper-body strength later in practice. A passionate player whose enthusiasm made him popular with teammates and coaches, Johnson is undeniably raw but his size, strength and speed will draw interest from 4-3 and 3-4 teams alike.

             Johnson put his name in the Bowie State record book in 2009, tying the Bulldogs all-time record for blocked punts/kicks in a season and became BSU’s all-time career blocked punts/kicks leader in 2010.
