03/07/2013 - 2013 Alabama A&M Pro Day: For 17 former Alabama A&M players, this was a chilly audition, the opportunity to nudge open a door into professional football. "Most of these guys' lifetime goal was to play in the NFL," said Alabama A&M strength and conditioning coach James Hester. "They had an opportunity today to show what they could do." Scouts representing the Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks were on campus for Alabama A&M's "Pro Day."
The main lure was Jamaal Johnson-Webb, the offensive lineman who last month was the first player from A&M to participate in the NFL Combine. Johnson-Webb improved his numbers from the Combine, he said. He was also a good resource for his former teammates, to advise them what to expect in the drills and to encourage their work.
The players participating, who were part of A&M's 24-player senior class from the 2012 season, were: RB Terrell Badie, LB Denzel Cotton, OL Joaquenssi Eugene, TE Bobby Goldsby, QB David Isabelle, RB Kaderius Lacey, DE Dee Lett, DB Vernon Marshall, DL Preston Nelson, DE Melvin Payne, LB Montay Rover, DL Tim Tillman, DB Joshua Udeh, OL Jamaal Johnson-Webb, DB Julius Wilson and K Chance Wilson. - Mark McCarter, Alabma Live
03/06/2013 - Seahawks, Packers and Chiefs scheduled to be at Alabama A&M Pro Day Wednesday...Jamaal Johnson-Webb had to represent for Alabama A&M all by his lonesome at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis last month. The 6-foot-5, 313-pound offensive lineman from Atlanta, the only player in the school's history ever to receive an invitation, will have plenty of company when he tries to make another impression on scouts at the Bulldogs' Pro Day Wednesday. Headlined by Johnson-Webb, who could go in the later rounds of the of the draft in late April, a group of 19 Bulldogs will work out for representatives from the Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs. Johnson-Webb will try to improve on the 17 reps at 225-pounds he put up on the bench press while in Indy. The Georgia native also turned in a time of 5.37 in the 40-yard dash and recorded a vertical leap of 23 inches. - Nick Birdsong, Alabama Live

01/10/2013 - Alabama A&M has one former player in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and a current alum who has been selected to the Pro Bowl five times. However, until now, it has never had a player invited to the NFL Scouting Combine, the showcase for potential draft picks. Jamaal Johnson-Webb, the Bulldogs' 6-foot-6, 315-pound offensive tackle, will be going to the Combine in Indianapolis Feb. 20-26.
"Four years of hard work and I got better every year," Johnson-Webb said Thursday afternoon at Louis Crews Stadium. "And now the opportunity is in front of me. It was great news I got when I was invited to the combine. I'm going to go from here and keep working hard and take advantage of my opportunities."
Johnson-Webb, an Atlanta native, will also have his chance to audition for NFL scouts at the Raycom All-Star Game at Montgomery's Crampton Bowl on Jan. 19. "That's very important, too," he said. "The scouts will be there to evaluate you in a playing environment with pads on against the other best players in college football. That's a huge step also." - Mark McCarter, Alabama Live
12/14/2012 - Alabama A&M's four year starter at left tackle, Jamal Johnson-Webb, was recently invited to the Raycom All-Star classic and the annual Texas vs. the Nation All-Star games.

During his career in high school he saw time on the Mundy's Mill football and basketball teams. "I am really proud of Webb," Pearl mentioned. "You always like to see kids hard work pay off. I wish him nothing but the best going forward."
