He was just in a situation where he wasn't "the" guy and never got the chance to start. Honnestly, the loss of Johnson is kind of disapointing. We don't have ANYONE behind Freeman... For that reason, I think that we're going to see them pick someone up in the first four rounds. Claiborn appears to be the front runner for the 1st, I'd love to see them pick up Ben Jones in the 2nd, Sean Spence in the 3rd or Kellen Moore... He might also be there in the 4th which would make for a good pick as a back up simply because he's got good brains and could relay the information to Freeman.
Johnson was the starter in 2009 then they drafted Freeman and he lost the job.
