2019 QB Roschon Johnson

Recommended Posts

Although I loved him as a runner tonight, I hope he gets a fair shot at QB if he wants to be a QB

Dude is a baller.  Held onto the ball, fought for yards, and made some great blocks in pass protection.  Deserves to see the field more than Ingram next week.

Haven’t seen him throw enough yet, but I could see him evolving into Sams replacement in 21. Has the it factor, physicality, and durable build.  Plus he committed like super early and never wavered... some people are just born Texan.

He should start. Big. Aggressive. Strong. He will be elite level before heading to the nfl.

He’s the reason we made this a game in the 2nd half. Running hard with passion, he got the rest of the offense going. Everyone else was kinda sleep walking until he woke everyone up.

I heard a few times last week, "you don't want Johnson out there picking up blitzes against LSU". Well, yeah, I guess we kind of do. 

It's going to be an interesting decision. And a stacked RB room next year. Ingram, Whittington, Bijan, probably Jordan.

I think he will go back to QB next year and beat out Thompson for backup (who will transfer out).  He will be our starter in 2021 and 22 while Milroe learns the ropes.

He’s a winner.  Like Ehlinger.  Hope we see LSU again this year.  

I don't. I hope we make the playoffs and they're in a NY6 bowl

All this. Telling everyone last night he just seems to run angry. I'm not sure who a decent comp would be because he's got a unique running style. He only gets low when necessary but when he accelerates, it always looks like he's pissed off chasing the dude who stole my grandmother's purse or something.

Next season:  Thompson Jr, Roschon Soph,  Card & Jackson Fr.   That’s gonna be a hell of a battle after Ehlinger’s senior season & national championship.

RoJo has a long way to go before beating Casey, his path to playing time is much easier at RB. His upside isn't nearly as high though.

Kid is a winner. He might not ever start at qb here but he seems to have a team first mentality and I love that

Team Player: that's one of the highest compliments anyone can pay in Herman's culture.  Roschon stepped up when his team need him.  He fought hard every play.  100% effort and played smart.  You can't ask for more from a true freshman changing position on a week's notice.

When he hits the hole, he comes with bad intentions and seems to always get positive yards. He kinda reminds me of Ced.

Was the Derrian on the sideline behind Herman during the game. If so, good to see him there and engaged.

He's certainly better than Ingram, and it's really not even close.

My memory could be off but Jamal seemed more of a "run like his hair was on fire" once he found his lane type of RB. Could be recency bias but he looks to be a lot more "twitchy" than Jamal, too.

True. Their body types in addition to other attributes make that comp a little hazy to me, though. 

The more I think about it, and this might be wayyy off to some (as well as unpopular), he's kind of a mix of Daniel Young (freshman year running with high pads but popped everyone in his way) and Manziel if he had played running back. 

My one concern is that he doesn't have the lower body strength to play the position long term, making him more susceptible to knee/ foot injuries. He's built, don't get me wrong, but he's really compact with the legs of a QB/ reciever. Yancy can help in this area some but genetics may be a little limited in that regard.

This may be the most all-over-the-place player comparison post I've ever read. 😄

Hey man, I said he was unique and couldn't really think of a good comp. You give it a try and tell me, mr. Goat RB analyst!

Came here to post something along these lines. I love this kids selfless attitude, but I hope he doesn’t end up getting lost in a healthy rb room because he decided to take one for the team and do something he hasn’t done since 5th grade. If his eventual position is ultimately rb, then it is what it is. I don’t know what his goals are, but I’m so proud of him for stepping up and taking on this challenge.

Throw Brian Orakpo and Bernie Kozar into a blender, and you're right there.

I've seen Mariota and Josh Allen throw stiff arms that Roschon reminds me of; maybe Roethlisberger, too, but obviously he doesn't run as well as any of the three aforementioned.

Of course, the three dudes in the NFL have all proven they have an arm of some description, which RoJo has not yet done, but Jesus H. Motherfucker, he's just a freshman in college, he has time. We don't know yet where his ceiling is, we just know he'll reach for it with attitude, because he's a bad motherfucker.

You are an imbecile. It’s spelled “Kosar”. Other than that, spot on.

What a Baller!!

IT:  Of course helping Ingram carry the load, and maybe even provide Ingram extra motivation, is Roschon Johnson. In the summer I received a message regarding Roschon and it essentially said, "not sure if Roschon is a quarterback, but he's something." I knew he was struggling with mechanics and just figured it would get ironed out with more time but the team needed him at running back. We're all amazed by his willingness to initiate contact. We also like that initial burst. What makes him special, though, is his mental maturity and preparation. He has fully immersed himself in the position and is always asking his reads and assignments. The old cliche of "give me 11 guys like him" certainly applies to his mental approach.
