Southern's Danny Johnson leads Jags 2018 pro day
BATON ROUGE, LA - It hasn't happened since 2004, but Danny Johnson hopes to become the first Jaguar drafted in almost 15 years later this month.
Southern's All-American cornerback not only impressed at the NFL combine, but turned heads again when scouts visited the bluff for the 2018 pro day.
Johnson finished off his career as a 3-time All-SWAC selection with 17 career interceptions as a 4-year starter for the Jaguars.
"With the draft, I'm not big on where I go. I just want to go to one team and get the opportunity to play. So regardless of what round I go in and where I go to, I'm just thankful for the opportunity."
Danny Johnson is projected to be a 4th-6th round pick in the 2018 NFL draft, but don't surprised to see one of the bluff's best go higher on the board later this month in Dallas.
