Shawn Johnson

Postby Justice Hog » Sun Jan 11, 2004 3:38 pm

Defensive End Shawn Johnson had a hellofa year playing for the University of Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens last year, on their way to the I-AA National Championship.

At times, it really looked like he was playing like a man among boys. Simply put, the guy's a stud.

Because he hails from a I-AA school, he may not even be drafted; however, I really hope the Redskins take a look at this kid.

He's got a ton of talent and he may easily slip under the radar!!!

We already have a guy from Delaware State University playin' for the Skins (way to go Darnerien!). I'd absolutely love it if the Skins could also get a Blue Hen on the team!!

I love Shawn Johnson, saw him on tv one time and thought He would look good in B&G. I would use the 5th pick at least to grab him.

Good for Shawn! If people didn't know who he was before....wait and see what they say about him after he participates in the combine!

I'd love it if the Redskins drafted him in the lower rounds!!!
