Duke Johnson, RB, Miami

At 5-foot-9, 210 pounds, Duke Johnson doesn’t have the size or power Jay Ajayi or even Tevin Coleman has, but he’s simply a player that requires defenses to key in on him. He’s an explosive player, as is the case by his 4.5 40-yard dash and his 35-inch vertical. Johnson is the quickest running back in this draft. His feet are extremely quick, he can change strides with ease, and he truly can play in Dallas’ zone-blocking scheme, despite his size. Here’s what Johnson had to say about playing in the Cowboys’ offensive scheme:

"“I can run it, basically, in my sleep. I ran it so much in high school and I also ran it a lot in college. I think that system fits me well.”"

If he can stay healthy, I truly believe that the Cowboys’ offense could make Johnson an absolute star. With a little bit of a crease, Johnson can make a defense pay. Behind the Cowboys’ offensive line, if Johnson shows some patience, he has the ability to be a Pro Bowler in his rookie season.
