Bucs Beat

Rick Stroud, Greg Auman and Matt Baker

Meet Josh Johnson

28

April

Johnsonbio Quarterback San Diego, 6-3, 198 Round 5, 160
Highlights/stats

Dominated the competition at I-AA San Diego, which doesn’t offer scholarships. … Passed for 9,699 yards with 113 touchdowns. … As a senior, threw 43 touchdowns and one interception. … Named most valuable player of the East-West Shrine game.
THE VERDICT
The Bucs have the luxury of developing Johnson for the future. He won’t play right away, but he also won’t be confused by the lengthy terminology of the West Coast offense, having played in a similar system under former NFL quarterback Jim Harbaugh. Johnson has the arm and athletic ability to be an NFL starter.
