Draft Scout Dennis Johnson News
04/21/13 - ROB RANG'S 2013 NFL DRAFT DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH: Dennis Johnson, Arkansas, 5-7, 196, 4.49* ... I can appreciate the fact that former Arkansas running back Knile Davis is the more impressive athlete in comparison to Johnson, but anyone who watched much of the Razorbacks over their respective careers will likely recognize the value the short (not small) running back/receiver/returner extraordinaire held with the team. Johnson left the SEC having led the conference with 5,330 all-purpose yards (2,036 rushing, 510 receiving, 2,784 as a kick-returner) in 50 games. In one of the more shocking snubs in recent combine history, he wasn't invited to Indianapolis but did prove his athleticism during an impressive Pro Day workout.
Five Other Running Backs to Consider: 1. Ray Holley, Louisiana Tech, 5-8, 194, 4.57* ... 2. Jawan Jamison, Rutgers, 5-8, 203, 4.62 ... 3. Miguel Maysonet, Stony Brook, 5-9, 209, 4.64 ... 4. Robbie Rouse, Fresno State, 5-7, 190, 4.75 ...5. Kerywn Williams, Utah State, 5-8, 195, 4.44 - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
03/24/13 - 2013 Arkansas Pro Day: Arkansas hosted 29 NFL team representatives, including the Miami Dolphins quarterback coach and the Jacksonville Jaguars running back coach, on its pro day on Friday. Drills were run indoors on FieldTurf. Twenty-eight people participated in the pro day, 23 from Arkansas.
Dennis Johnson, RB (5-6 3/4, 196) - Johnson had times of 4.47 and 4.49 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He also recorded a 32 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-10 broad jump. He ran a 4.55-second short-shuttle and a very fast 7.11-second three-cone drill. John put up 225 pounds 21 times. The thoughts on him are he would make an excellent kick returner in the NFL. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
11/19/12 - WEEK 12 SEC OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE: RB DENNIS JOHNSON (Arkansas) -- Rushed for 88 yards on 15 carries against Mississippi State. - SEC football
11/13/12 - Week 11 Rewind: South Carolina won this game due to their ability to slow down Wilson and the passing attack but this was all set up by forcing the Gamecocks to abandon their star all-purpose ball-carrier Dennis Johnson after he fumbled early. Johnson, who entered the game as the Southeastern Conference's reigning career all-purpose yardage leader with 5,084 yards, was limited to just 58 total yards Saturday. Johnson, who I highlighted as one of the five prospects to watch this week, had a critical fumble on the Gamecocks' five-yard line. The 5-08, 212 pound pin ball is difficult for defenders to tackle due to his excellent balance, as well as short, choppy steps that give him power and quickness. Down big throughout the second half, Johnson only had five touches over the final two quarters, robbing Arkansas of their most consistent player on offense. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
11/10/12 - Week 11 Prospects To Watch: Dennis Johnson, RB, Arkansas: While the Razorbacks' more explosive athlete, Knile Davis, boasts the higher upside to pique scouts' interest, Johnson has been the team's most consistent runner, receiver and returner throughout this season, and frankly, over their respective careers. Arkansas started off poorly this season but have won three of their past four games and senior quarterback Tyler Wilson remains the SEC's top senior quarterback, which puts him in the thick of the race to earn a first round selection. Wilson, Johnson and the rest of the Razorbacks will have a tough test Saturday morning in Columbus facing an athletic and physical South Carolina defense coming off a bye. This game begins at noon ET and will be televised by CBS. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
