Name: Darron Johnson

Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
I would say that I understood a whole new defense my following senior year. Understanding the scheme and making sure my teammates are in the right place. I tried to be more of an upfront leader holding my teammates accountable as well as myself.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
My coaches would say that I am humble. I handle adversity pretty well no matter what happens or what I may come up against. They would also say that I am a hard worker and that I am dedicated to whatever I do.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
When studying film I look at all the wrong things that I’m doing to improve my skills. Even if I made a great play, I look to see what could I have done better. When studying my opponent I look for there strengths and weaknesses. Does the linemen give up the pull read, how the HB is aligned, and the different formations that the offense have favorite plays they consistently run.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
I would say handling adversity very well. When things don’t turn out how you want them to, you have to always remain to course. A lot of people give up and let adversity get the best of them. Character is the most important part of handling adversity. This is what separates me from others in my position.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
During the off-season I plan on staying in shape. Maintaining my strength and speed as well. Working on my flexibility will play a key role during off-season workouts as well.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
My athleticism will bring a lot to the team. Also my work ethic and the ability to complete any task to the best of my ability. I have a funny personality and positive energy when I am around others. Off the field my character is good representation of who I am and how I carry myself as well. No matter if it is performing community service or etc.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
I will be a great asset to any Pro team there is. I will work hard to the best of my ability no matter the circumstances.
