  Draft Scout by Conference

  Paris Johnson assumed Ohio State football would have an opening at left tackle by his sophomore season. After the national championship game, the Buckeyes' starting left tackle, Thayer Munford, confided in Johnson that he might not be ready to vacate his post. The NCAA decided no fall athletes would accrue eligibility last season. Munford could put off the NFL Draft and come back for a "Super Senior" season. Johnson - widely complimented on his maturity since his days as one of the nation's top high school recruits - had to process his personal goals against Munford's. He said Munford knew what Johnson's expectations were and "kept it real" regarding his own thinking.

"At the end of the day, the most important thing is ... him getting his degree, and then being able to go the highest that you can when you leave this place - to maximize that opportunity," Johnson said. "I told him just to pray on it and go where he felt peace, and then that should be the decision. He said he felt peaceful coming back. So I told him you shouldn't go against that feeling, so I was all for it." Johnson has been playing guard extensively this spring and now projects as the starter on the right side next to tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere, who he has bonded with. - Cleveland Plain Dealer
