Jeron Johnson, SS, Boise State

The Boise State defense does not usually get the credit it deserves. That is understandable with the stellar offense, but one player that is difficult to overlook is safety Jeron Johnson. For the last three years he has been the leader of the defense and that alone should earn him some recognition. Johnson has led the Broncos in tackles for three consecutive seasons. Even as a freshman back in 2007 he was a fine tackler, but missed four games with an injury and that stifled his attempt to lead Boise State in tackles that season.

Johnson also ended his collegiate career with eight interceptions. Johnson is a very versatile player who can step up and lay out the big hit or drop back effectively in coverage. He is not the biggest or strongest safety in this class, but he can be a fine safety at the next level. He has the speed and instincts to play on Sundays for quite some time.

Johnson's draft will likely hinge on his speed. His 40 times have been all over the place. If he can stay in the 4.45 range, he should be a third or fourth round selection. If that speed slips, so will Johnson's draft stock.
