07/30/2014 - Other Maryland prospects worth watching: CB Jeremiah Johnson, RS Senior...Johnson was a full-time starting corner in 2012, but struggled with injuries last year, seeing limited action in only three games. He is quick and fluid with the length and aggressive nature to be a factor vs. the run and on special teams, but needs to stay strong in 2014 to bolster his NFL resume. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
