According to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com, University of Montana CB Trumaine Johnson has a visit scheduled with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chiefs aren’t the only team interested in the two-time All-American. Johnson has also drawn interest from the Falcons, Jets, Eagles, Patriots, Cards, Colts, Panthers, Vikings, Dolphins, Bears and Bengals.
There are some character concerns with Johnson, who was arrested last October, pleading not guilty to obstructing a peace officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. Police shot Johnson with a stun gun.
Johnson offers great size for a CB, standing at 6’2″. NFL Draft Scout projects him as a second round pick.
CBs are valuable in the NFL, especially CBs that offer the size to match up with some of the leagues bigger receivers. If Johnson can convince teams that he won’t be a problem off the field, he could be taken high, especially if there is a run on CBs.
The Chiefs could always use more depth at CB. It still remains to be seen how CB Stanford Routt will work in Romeo Crennel’s defense. Should the experiment fail, it wouldn’t hurt the Chiefs to have a young corner at the ready.
The great thing about this draft is that for the first time in years, the Chiefs really could take any player at any time and get significantly deeper. If Scott Pioli can hit on his picks this year, the Chiefs could be in very good shape for years to come.
What do you think, Addicts? Is a player like Johnson worth the risk?
