2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Jerrod Johnson, QB, Texas A&M

Jerrod Johnson started his senior season as a Heisman hopeful, but will end it watching a converted wide receiver taking snaps. It is not because of an injury that Johnson is watching from the sidelines and that is what makes it very difficult for a player who owns many passing records at Texas A&M. Johnson was simply benched because of his poor performances. It has not helped that new quarterback Ryan Tannehill has had some great success and led the Aggies to a nice little winning streak.

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.
