Word is going around in the NFL scouting circles that Broncos are targeting Alabama Safety Rashad Johnson with one of their 3rd round picks. Johnson is a favorite of many draft experts, based off of his work ethic and history of over achievement. Johnson was a walk on at Alabama where he eventually became one of the team’s two captains. He is a talent at a position of need for the Broncos and would bring some much needed leadership on that side of the ball. Scout.com reports that Rashad has already worked out with the Broncos and visited with the team but they were not one of the teams that interviewed the safety during the combine. One of my more favorite columnists, Rick Gosselin has an excellent writeup on Johnson saying he has selected Rashad as his favorite player of the 2009 draft.
