Former Boise State tailback Ian Johnson put together another impressive workout Tuesday for NFL scouts at the Broncos’ annual pro day.
Johnson, who has bulked up to 212 pounds, did not run the 40-yard dash because he posted a terrific time of 4.46 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine. He did do agility drills.
“He’s as big as he’s ever been and moving as well as he’s ever moved,” Boise State coach Chris Petersen said. “… He looked fast and he looked powerful.”
Johnson was one of 11 former Broncos to participate in pro day. About a dozen NFL scouts and a couple of CFL representatives showed up — a much smaller crowd than traveled to Ryan Clady’s workout last year.
Johnson plans to stay in Boise for the next month. He will watch the NFL Draft in California.
“I’m not satisfied yet, because I still know there are a lot of things I can work on,” he said. “… Now it’s keep on the same path of helping myself every day.”
He doesn’t worry about draft position, he said. He’s confident he will make a team regardless.
“I will stick with a team once I get there,” he said. “Once I get that chance, I’ll work until my second contract, third contract, fourth contract, until you kick me off the field. For me, it’s just getting that first chance.”
