Miami junior RB Duke Johnson's best attribute is his burst, writes ESPN's Todd McShay.
Johnson rushed for 920 yards and scored six touchdowns in eight games before breaking his right tibia against Florida State on Nov. 2. "He doesn't have an elite second gear, but he reaches his top-end speed quickly," McShay wrote. "He doesn't shake defenders with highlight-reel moves, but he has the agility to make the first defender miss and he's a run-after-catch threat in the passing game. He runs really hard, but doesn't have the power base to regularly push the pile (he's tougher to tackle in space, with an effective stiff arm). He rates very well in terms of intangibles, but his durability is a concern that NFL teams will have to monitor." Johnson has surpassed 100 yards seven times in 20 career appearances.
