There has been a recent post by Fortworth giving us a great feel for what Maybin could possibly bring. First, Thank you for the information Fortworth. Second, as much as I like Maybin, I personally lean toward another DE in the draft more. I am very impressed with Michael Johnson of Georgia Tech. Why? I just think he kind of reminds me of a young Bruce Smith.
I watched a few GT games over the last couple of years and every time I do, this guy stood out to me on the field. Going into his senior season he had quite a bit of hype. Did he live up to that hype? Maybe not the #1 overall hype that was initially thought, but, I have to tell ya. I would "love" him at #11.
This kid is a physical specimen with excellent height, decent weight (with room for muscle growth) and EXCELLENT speed. This kid can come off the edge with the best of them. He ran a recorded 4.66 speed at the combine in the 40 but it has been reported that a few NFL coaches have clocked him in the 4.49-4.59 range. This guy put up 28 reps of 225 at the combine as well. At 6'7" 260 pounds this kid to me would be an instant contributor on our defensive line.
I have come across some pretty decent updated information with all his measurables and news and notes of what he did for coaches at his pro day if you havent read on him already. I move to select DE Michael Johnson from Georgia Tech @ #11 for the Buffalo Bills. Anyone second that? Please check it out the link at nfldraftscout.com. Micheal Johnson - DE - Georgia Tech
I am also adding a highlight clip that I found. Make sure to check him out coming off the snap of the ball as well as possible special teams FG blocking situations. Wow!! Johnson Hightlight Clip
