Name: Zac Johnson
Weight: 199 lbs.
High School: Morenci High School in Morenci, MI
Class: Redshirt sophomore
Jersey Number: #19
2008 statistics: 8 special teams tackles
Prediction for 2009: Special teams standout
Johnson might seem like an odd pick to be so high on this list, but for one thing, he’ll almost surely start (on special teams, at least), whereas a lot of guys lower than this will purely be backups. Johnson made eight special teams tackles last year, and even when he wasn’t necessarily making the tackle, he always seemed to be wreaking havoc on returners. His skills make me think he could be a decent safety, as well. He was a state finalist in the 100 meters and 4 x 400 in high school, so he’s got a bit of speed. I think he’ll continue to be a terror on special teams, and even though I don’t think he’ll get much of a chance to play on defense, I think he’s a valuable asset for the program.
