Generic name aside, Mike Johnson was an excellent pick for the Atlanta Falcons.
With their supplemental pick at the end of the third round, the Falcons erased a lot of doubt engendered by the selection of Corey Peters by taking the Albama guard. Big at 6'5" and 312 pounds, Johnson is a strong, smart, technically sound offensive lineman whose biggest weaknesses are his footwork and athleticism. Frankly, the footwork can be addressed, and a guy with good footwork and technically sound blocking is better than a superfreak athlete any day at the position.
In the short-term, Johnson gives the Falcons a versatile backup on an offensive line that doesn't have nearly enough of them. In the long-term, he could team with Garrett Reynolds on the right side for one wing of a truly nasty offensive line, or he could supplant Justin Blalock if the incumbent continues to struggle. If this is a reach, it's by like 10 picks, maximum, and he's clearly the kind of intelligent player that the Falcons really value.
So we end the second day on a high note. Join me tomorrow morning, when we post another live blog and slog through the remaining rounds!
