Draft Scout Wesley Johnson News
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Steelers' picks: Round 5/173 - Wesley Johnson, OL, 6-5, 297, Vanderbilt...Versatile player who started 51 games, mostly at tackle but some at center and guard and that attracted him to the Steelers. Durability also an asset for a team that has had many injured linemen the past few years. - The Sports Xchange
12/11/13 - 2013 ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): OL - Wesley Johnson, Vanderbilt...Johnson also achieved a remarkable career of his own as a four-year starter. No player in Vanderbilt history has started and played more games than Johnson. The Nashville product started his 50th consecutive game in the season finale vs. Wake Forest. Johnson is considered one of the conference's most athletic and versatile offensive linemen.
He has played virtually every important snap for the Commodores since the 2010 opener, and has started at four different line positions: left tackle, right tackle left guard and center. This year, Johnson has started every game at left tackle, protecting the blindside of Vanderbilt quarterbacks against one of the NCAA's top defensive ends. During his career, he has been flagged for just two holding penalties and has allowed just 7.5 quarterback sacks in 1,281 pass plays, averaging one sack per 171 plays. - Vanderbilt football
12/10/13 - 2013 ASSOCIATED PRESS ALL-SEC SECOND TEAM: OL - Wesley Johnson (Tie), Vanderbilt, 6-5, 295, Sr,...Johnson, a redshirt senior from Nashville, finished his career with more consecutive starts (50) than any active player in the SEC. The 6-5, 295 pound lineman has been an anchor for the Vandy offensive line. Over the past four seasons, Johnson has been on the field for all, but two, of Vanderbilt's offensive touchdowns.
The redshirt senior has also shown his versatility, with starts at four different offensive line positions. Over the past two years, Johnson has allowed only two quarterback sacks as a left tackle. - Vanderbilt football
10/28/13 - 2014 NFL DRAFT: WEEK 9 STOCK REPORT, NFL PROSPECTS WHO HELPED THEMSELVES: OT Wesley Johnson, Vanderbilt...A prospect entering his fourth year as a starter in the SEC, Johnson was around for Vanderbilt's two win season in 2010, but has been a big part of the revamped Commodores the past few seasons. His 46th career start came in College Station on Saturday and he put together another solid performance. Generously listed at 6-5 and 295 pounds, Johnson's bulk, strength and overall length aren't strengths, but he has easy movement skills and does an excellent job getting to the second level with above average lower body control to mirror in space.
He is smart with astute awareness to pick up defenders and is a clinic for combination blocks. Johnson does need to flash more nastiness at the point of attack to control rushers in the run game, but he excels with body positioning and has a brilliant understanding of angles and utilizes his entire frame to shield defenders from the protection zone. While his lack of elite size/length might limit his NFL potential, Johnson is a name to watch in the middle rounds. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
