04/23/2012 - These days, Steven Johnson can't say for sure whether he'll be drafted. He just has to wait. The NFL draft - football's annual three-day spectacle - is still seven days away. And Johnson, a linebacker from Kansas, probably wouldn't hear his named called until the third day, anyway. "I'm not gonna say I expect to get drafted," Johnson says. "I will say that it is a dream of mine." This is the life of a marginal prospect from a program that went 5-19 during his final two seasons on campus. Then again, this is how it's always been for Johnson, a former walk-on who worked himself into the Big 12's leading tackler and a team captain during his senior year. No, Johnson can't tell you if he'll be drafted - or where. But he can tell you that he'll make it. And he'll tell you why. He'll tell you about the time his high school coach wasn't sure if Johnson would be able to start as a senior. (Still remembers the coach's name, in fact.) Or he'll tell you the time he had to go to prep school because the scholarship offers never really came. You might hear about the torn knee ligaments he suffered during that prep school year, effectively ending his recruitment. Or how he finally ended up at KU as an invited walk-on in 2007, his father mortgaging his own barbershop in Pennsylvania to provide tuition for his son. "My foundation," Johnson says, "and where I come from; my upbringing has really helped me out." And all these stories and setbacks, Johnson says, simply prepared him for his greatest challenge yet. "I think back to what I've done," Johnson says. "When I hit some adversity at the next level, I can be like ???I've worked for this, I've worked for everything I've ever earned in my life.'?" - Rustin Dodd, The Kansas City Star
