PLAYERS
Cody Johnson
Position: FB
Class:  Sr
School: Texas
HT: 5'11"
WT: 250 lbs.
40 Time: 4.76
Conference: Big 12
Biography: Started 10 games as a senior, posting 48 attempts/20 yards/6 TDs after he had 134/592/6 as a junior.

Positives: Large, powerful college ballcarrier who projects to fullback at the next level. Aggressive, tough and effective as a short-yardage runner. Drives his shoulders into defenders and falls forward when tackled. Gives effort as a lead blocker, squaring into defenders.

Negatives: Displays limited quickness and speed in his game and displays almost no burst. Struggles getting outside of the tackle.

Analysis: Johnson has the skill to be a lead blocker at the next level and showed a willingness to do as much in college. He needs to improve his blocking technique; will have a chance to make a roster that keeps two fullbacks.

Projection: FA
