05/12/2014 - A closer look at the 49ers' picks: Round 4/129 -- Dontae Johnson, CB, 6-2, 200, North Carolina State...Johnson is a project that lacks fundamentals but has great athletic upside. His size and speed combination (he ran a 4.45 in the 40) is one you find in earlier rounds, but he jumped between corner and safety without fully mastering one position. The 49ers and their coaching staff will have to coach him up, but he could be a starter down the road if he realizes his potential allowed by his physical gifts. - The Sports Xchange

05/12/2014 - QUOTES TO NOTE: "Honestly, Richard Sherman, he'a great athlete, great competitor, but his work ethic has gotten him to where he is. the great success that he has came from his work ethic. Hopefully I can e half the man that he was and just bring that work ethic to practice...I'm not Richard Sherman, I'm Dontae Johnson and hopefully I'll hope to build my name just work off of my work ethic." 49ers fourth-round corner Dontae Johnson (6-2, 200) on comparisons to Richard Sherman. - The Sports Xchange

09/19/2013 - Scouting the North Carolina State pass defense: The Wolfpack has been up to snuff in the secondary considering the losses of personnel from a year ago. But facing Clemson will bring a new set of challenges, not to mention a speed component that is bound to be in another gear from what the Wolfpack has faced so far this season. - The Sports Xchange

09/06/2013 - Scouting the NC State pass defense: The Wolfpack is breaking in some new combinations in the defensive backfield and that's always reason for some apprehension. But the secondary seems capable of putting together enough alternate looks to cause confusion for inexperience quarterbacks and perhaps some undermanned opponents. - The Sports Xchange

08/11/2013 - OTHER NC STATE PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: CB Dontae Johnson (6-2, 196, 4.63)...The "other" starter opposite David Amerson a year ago, Johnson has similar size as Amerson and is lone returning starter in the secondary. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
