Draft prospects

I don't normally write draft profiles but I believe this guy has been seriously under-rated and could become a future star in the mould of DeSean Jackson.

DaMaris Johnson:

Height: 5 foot 8

Weight: 180 lbs

Position: Wide receiver/Kick returner

Damaris Johnson is a slot receiver and kick returner from Tulsa. He is a very interesting player with 4.4 speed and unbelievable agility. He is not well known mainly due to his college's low profile but without off field problems he could have been a mid-round pick. He will now more than likely go undrafted although at best he could be a 7th round pick.

By the end of his college career Damaris Johnson is the all time leader in yardage in NCAA football. He may be playing in the conference USA but he averages 202 yards per game. That's a hell of a lot of yards!! He is an excellent kick returner and playing against Notre Dame he scored 3 TD's in the one game (2 returns, 1 reception). He is a slot receiver with unrefined route-running skills. He is not polished as a receiver and he tends to let the ball hit his body too much. He has the ability to separate from defenders with his agility and speed.

His size could prove a problem at the next level as he is extremely light. However throughout his college career injuries were never a serious problem. The biggest knock on Johnson is his off-field problems. He was suspended by Tulsa indefinitely for being charged with embezzlement. This prompted him to declare for the draft.

I believe this player could become an excellent undrafted free agent. Whether he does not probably comes down to his commitment to the game and dealing with his off-field problems.
