Anthony Johnson entered this season with the most hype surrounding his junior season for LSU  players and was considered a preseason first round pick by many, but has had an up-and-down season. He has made splash plays like the interception of Aaron Murray at Georgia, but has also disappeared for stretches of time.

His statistical production is not what makes him a desirable draft prospect, however as that is his incredible athleticism and vast potential as a three-technique in a 4-3 defense. He ranks as the fifth best defensive tackle prospect according to Scouts Inc, and the 37 overall draft-eligible prospect.

Prediction: He’ll declare for the draft where he’ll be a late-first round pick.
