Dontae Johnson

As a State fan I saw this guy a decent amount. He was at his best and IMO was overshadowed by Amerson 2 years ago. Had a little fall off this year but I think that was more a product of the team turnover. He's 6'2" 200lbs and ran a 4.43.

This draft is DEEP at DB. This guy might be a 3rd-4th round pick bc all of these DBs are killing it. IMO he'd be a great pickup around that area.

I watched whatever film they had on him at draft breakdown and I'm thinking teams may want to see what he can do at safety

He's not a great tackler IMO. I think his coverage ability is better than his hitting. Dude is skilled and if he can be used sparingly his rookie year I could see him being a big-bodied corner.

Also saw he was the second fastest 60 yard runner. Drills don't mean much but I like Dontae as a prospect. In the right system he will be a good player.

If we miss out on fuller in the 1st for whatever reason, this is a guy I dial up later. He could be a really great fs in time and could be the #3cb today. He is not going to match up well with the speedsters at wr or the elite wrs but he should be able to come in and hold his own in certain 3cb packages. I could see round 3 and be ok because of the measurables but at this point it appears he is more a 4th guy.

I went to State and really am a fan but I see him as a 5th rounder max.  I am not a draft guru but I really think there will be other talent in the 3rd and 4th that will decrease his value.  Not saying he should not be on an NFL roster.  Just saying I think the 3rd or the 4th is a bit early for me. 

 

That said watch him go in the 1st now....

    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
    • In kindergarten we had weekly job theme where you could play pretend and be a worker or a customer. One week they had a salon type deal going on. My parents never instilled any sort of gender identity within me, so I went and got my hair did. I didn't know I was a boy and wasn't supposed to do that. The girls didn't think it was weird either.. Never turned gay or tranny.     My hair looked fuging luxurious too, btw.
