It's good to see some running backs come in.
Out of all these I'm probably most intrigued by linebacker, Micah Johnson- Kentucky

Bringing in Micah Johnson for a try out is awesome to hear. I'll be surprised if we don't sign him. He's my under dog to start at MLB. Very Happy

I don't think he'll have a big chance at mlb since our office is so convinced with Dillard competing there.

If not for the drafting Dillard I would of said heck yeah. Still I think Micah will have a good shot at competing on the strong side.

I kept waiting to hear his name called late in the draft and remember hyping this kid up a little bit with you before the draft Pizan.lol

Lol yea well I think if he drops a little weight he'll gain a little speed. I figured a 3-4 team would draft him late but geez if the best he can get is only a try out that's not a good sign. So I guess it would be going out on a limb if I said he'll be the reason Dillard Or Tracy doesn't make the team. ... I'll go with that as long as Micah loses some weight. I just question if he's a Tom coughlin type of player.
