Rishaw Johnson, OG, California (PA) – 6033 313 5.16 One-year starter. Transferred from the University of Mississippi after numerous suspensions. Long arms and big hands along with athletic ability give him a chance to be in camp. A mauler type physical blocker who struggled in both the Shrine and Senior Bowl games against top competition. Had consistent technique breakdowns. Loses his concentration and focus then jumps the count. Will overextend and doesn’t bring his feet at times. Between the red flags and a need for position and repetitions, he has his work cut out for him. OSR:5/48. Seventh round/PFA. (A-35 1/4, H-10 1/4, BP-22, 10-1.78).
Jermaine Kearse, WR, Washington – 6007 209 4.58 Three-year starter who is a productive slot type receiver. He runs several horizontal type routes including numerous bubble screens. Shows good open field running skills after catch. His physical build would pass as a running back. A better than average athlete who can compete on vertical and horizontal routes. Needs to be more consistent catching the ball in his hands. Not easy to tackle. A physical type receiver like an Anquan Boldin of the Ravens. He will only be limited by how badly he wants to make a team on the next level. He has the skills and athletic ability. 2011 stats: 47-699 yds, 14.9 ypr, 7 TDs. Has 30 career touchdowns. OSR:24/42. Fifth/sixth round. (A-31 1/8, H-9 1/4, VJ-34, SS-4.12).
Carson Wiggs, PK, Purdue – 6005 221 4.96 Four-year starter. Right-footed soccer style kicker. Has the five longest field goals in Purdue history. His long is 59 yards. Improved his consistency and leg quickness in 2011. Averaged 65.5 yards per kickoff as a senior. Had two successful onside kicks in the Little Caesars’ Pizza Bowl. Can handle bad weather. Had 55 career punts as a backup punter. 2011 stats: 19/25 FGs, long 53 yds, career 125/129 PATs. Seventh round/PFA.
