An amazing stat that Duke Johnson has accomplished in his three years at Miami is that he is the schools all time all-purpose yard leader and he still has the potential to return next season for his senior season.
Johnson has impeccable quickness and illusiveness. He has the ability to make men miss and has a dangerous stiff arm to boot. Has a knack for being able to make a move and accelerate all in one smooth move. He is also a great receiver out of the backfield, whether it is in the slot or as a check down.
At only 5’9″ 205 pounds, he will most likely not be able to handle the 3 down offense in a one back system and will require a platoon mate. Injuries have also been a mild concern, a 2013 ankle injury could reoccur and must be monitored. On tape, he really isn’t asked to protect in the pass game and that would have to be an area of concern as well.
Duke Johnson is a good college running back and has the potential to carve a career out in the league. He will most likely have to be a running mate with a fellow running back to share the load. Johnson will most likely be a 3rd or 4th round pick in this year’s draft.
