Last Chance U has been a great series on Netflix and this week we could see several players get a shot who were featured on the show. The main player that should hear his name called in the first round is Jermaine Johnson.

His collegiate career started at Independence Community College and became the No. 1 JUCO recruit after two seasons.

Johnson played two seasons at Georgia before transferring to Florida State. As a fifth year senior, he led the ACC in tackles for loss with 18, and sacks with 12. He was named a first team All-Conference player and ACC Defensive Player of the Year.

The NFL loves Johnson and he has been linked to many teams in the top 20 picks of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Brian Baldinger recently had some really high thoughts on the edge rusher from Last Chance U.

“He’s going to bull rush the tackle and turn it into power and that’s what you love to see,” Baldinger said. “His ability to back up the tackle and get to the quarterback, he has that move. Against the run, set the edge and if the back comes outside, then you chase the back down. He has that ability to chase the edge on the outside. All phases of the game, Jermaine Johnson is an elite prospect.”

Johnson has a knack for getting after the quarterback and I would not be shocked to see him go top 25 in the NFL Draft. he will become the highest draft pick ever from the show.
