I've got a secret but you've got to promise not to tell anyone else.
University of Akron running back Andrew Johnson is the fastest running back in the 2009 NFL draft and I'm not talking about our 17th president.
So says the Sports Agents Blog.
Dynasty client, Andrew Johnson, was told by the Indianapolis scout that he had the fastest timed 40 for any running back that the Colts have clocked so far this year.
...the University of Akron released its electronic times and revealed that on a slower than normal surface, Andrew Johnson clocked a 4.32 40
It gets better too. Only two teams, our New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts, were in attendance at Akron's pro day to check this kid out. Since making so many upgrades to their defense via free agency, many draft experts now think the Saints will go with a running back like Chris "Beanie" Wells with their first round pick in this years draft. But the emergence of Andrew Johnson and the fact that he's obviously on the Saints radar might mean they'll try to address their running back issues in the later rounds by stealing this diamond in the rough.
Keep your eyes open.
