Travis Johnson: 5 Things You Need to Know About the San Jose State DE
Jason O. Watson-USA TODAY Sports

A draft code that is applicable to virtually every NFL team is that, no matter the round, it is always helpful to bring in a versatile linebacker type.

More often than not, these players are going to provide depth and competition at the position while lending a helping hand on special teams.

It is even better when these players have untapped upside and offer a unique skill set to a defense, such as pass-rush ability.

This year, Travis Johnson of San Jose State University classifies as one of those diamonds in the rough among defensive end/linebacker prospects. 

During his NCAA career, Johnson (6'2", 240 lbs.) mostly played with his hand in the grass for the Spartans, operating out of their four-man front, but there were plenty of games were he showed he was capable of rushing from an upright stance.

Johnson is the 24th-ranked ouside linebacker out of 200 prospects in 2013, per NFL Draft Scout. He is a late-round hopeful who could potentially develop into an effective situational rusher and special teams gunner.
