The NFL draft is one of the most exciting times of the offseason.
Every team has optimism and is hoping that they can find the next superstars in the league.
Each year we see rookies play a major role in the NFL.
There is no longer a buffer period for rookies, as the top picks are usually thrown right into the starting lineups.
That should be no different from the 2023 draft class.
It will be interesting to see who gets picked where, as that plays a massive factor in a player’s career outlook.
Just this past season we saw Sauce Gardner, Garrett Wilson, Kenneth Walker, and others thrive in their first year.
In this upcoming draft class, there is a player that almost no one is talking about.
But they should.
That is Texas running back Roschon Johnson according to NFL insider Jordan Schultz.
Don’t sleep on Texas RB Roschon Johnson. He’s an absolute tank, but he can legit move too. He’s a natural pass-catcher as well.
I’m just a huge fan of Roschon’s game and teams I’ve spoken with have consistently raved about his toughness and physical running style. #NFLCombine

Not many people are talking about Johnson because of his teammate Bijan Robinson.
Robinson is the best running back in the class and is seen as a generational talent.
So even though Johsnon will not get the hype of his teammate he is well worth a mid-round pick.
Johnson was not utilized much in college, as he only had 93 carries in his senior season.
But with those carries, he collected 554 and averaged 6.0 yards per rush.
If not for his teammate’s dominance, Johnson would have a lot more hype.
But, that just means some team might get a steal later on in the draft.
