2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Jerrod Johnson, QB, Texas A&M
Ever since his freshman campaign, Johnson has been a promising dual-threat quarterback. In 2007 he only saw action in five games and only threw seven passes, but two of those went for touchdowns and he added three more scores on the ground. In 2008 Johnson was a wide receiver before taking over the quarterback duties due to an injury to starter Stephen McGee. Starting ten games, Johnson threw for 21 touchdowns and ten interceptions. That is not too bad for a player who had no experience and was forced into duty. The 2009 season was Johnson's big year. He threw for 3,579 yards and 30 touchdowns and was only intercepted eight times. He also rushed for 506 yards and added eight more scores on the ground.
Johnson's future is probably not at quarterback, although at 6-5 and 245 pounds, he has the look of a nice dual-threat NFL quarterback. However, he has never been an efficient or accurate passer and if he cannot keep the job at Texas A&M, he certainly will not make the cut at the next level. Unless his shoulder injury seriously hindered his ability to pass or he starts working on catching the ball again, Johnson will likely go undrafted.
