Rutgers OG Kaleb Johnson is the Scarlet Knights' best senior prospect, writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.
The 6-foot-4, 305-pound Johnson made the transition from tackle to guard last season, and started all 13 games at left guard for the Scarlet Knights. "Many believe the move from left tackle to guard last season hurt Johnson," Pauline wrote. "Yet measuring under 6-feet, 4-inches its unlikely any team will project Johnson to blindside tackle." The Rutgers prospect thought about going pro last year, but only received a 4th-to-7th round projection from the NFL Advisory Committee. Aug 9 - 6:20 PM

Rutgers junior OL Kaleb Johnson could enter the NFL draft, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

Pauline is hearing the news from several sources. Johnson moved from tackle to guard prior to the season, but has experience on the right or the left edge. Having tape at three different positions could help Johnson's evaluation.

Rutgers has shifted junior Kaleb Johnson from offensive tackle to guard.

Johnson played right tackle as a freshman All-American in 2011 and earned second-team All-Big East honors last season as the left tackle. "I definitely think starting at three different positions is something that's going to help me get to the next level," Johnson told the Newark Star-Ledger. "I've heard they only travel with seven or eight offensive linemen in the NFL. So having that under my belt, playing three positions, is going to help." Johnson, lauded for his run blocking, is a better fit inside in the NFL. The massive Keith Lumpkin (6-foot-8, 315 pounds) will take over at left tackle.
