Chris Johnson

Running Back

Before the 2008 combine, East Carolina running back Chris Johnson was a projected mid-round pick. That was until he ran the 40 in 4.24 seconds, tied for the fastest all time. Johnson made the Titans look smart after picking him with the 24th overall pick. He became the sixth running back in history to run for more than 2,000 yards in his second season.
