    Herman Johnson - LSU - OG - 6'7" 1/4 - 364LBS

    He's freakishly ginormous and since I'm still a newbie to College football I don't know a ton about him but I've read some interesting things... Plus we all know how much AJ loves LSU players hehe

    For those who know more than I about the draft prospects than I - what do you think of him?

    Where is his center of gravity? Problem with really tall OG is often they do not have a low center of gravity and are easily leveraged off of their position.

    Wouldn't his "center of gravity" be in the center? :icon_tease:

    He looked really sluggish at the senior bowl, lots of questions if he's anything but a RG slow mauler



    And his center of gravity is sufficient that if you throw up things near him, they'll orbit him in a geocentric fashion. Observe:

    johnson seems way slow of foot. And with lack of quickness may miss blocks. I'm more interested in VAsquez of texas tech and levitre of oregon state or one or two others in getting them in the third round.
