Johnson is an All-American back for the Broncos and what he lacks in size he makes up for in speed. However, the key to his success is not his quickness as much as it is the zone blocking schemes Boise State uses. You won't see him running over anyone like Adrian Peterson does and the Sooners could keep him bottled up if the defensive line and linebackers fight off their blocks. Johnson is part one of the Broncos two-headed offensive monster and it should go without saying that the Sooners have got to stop him tomorrow night.
