Safety Rashad Johnson visited the Eagles today. Out of Alabama, Johnson posted a 4.49 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine. He recorded 94 tackles his junior year and 82 his senior year. During those two years he recorded 11 interceptions. Johnson could afford to put on some weight as he only weighs 185 pounds.
The Eagles have made some additions to add depth to safety position but it never hurts to get younger. Johnson appears to be a pure athlete with good speed and has a knack for finding the football. He is regarded to be among the top three safety’s in the draft so he could be a nice addition in the second round or so where he will more than likely go.
