2013 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Jul-28-2013 by Ben Standig
The buzz surrounding the 5-foot-8 sparkplug was mounting even before Jeremy Maclin's season-ending knee injury. Now that the Eagles' second receiver job is up for grabs, expect chatter about Johnson's exploits to reach another level. Whether college football's all-time leader in all-purpose yards can play a meaty role on the NFL level is the question. As a rookie, Johnson averaged 13.5 yards on 19 receptions while his lone touchdown came as a punt returner. On paper, his shifty style makes for a great fit in Chip Kelly's up-tempo schemes, more than Jason Avant or Riley Cooper. Now the training camp opportunity exists to show that Johnson can make the transition from potential to production.
