Pitt NFL Draft Projections: Dorian Johnson

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Dorian Johnson was a blue-chip recruit when he came to Pitt. Not all of those guys turn into great players, but Johnson did.

Johnson is a virtual lock to be selected in the upcoming NFL Draft. The question is where he goes.

Johnson was part of a line that paved the way for James Conner to have big seasons in 2014 and 2016. In 2015, the line produced Qadree Ollison's 2015 ACC Offensive Rookie of the Year campaign.

In 2015, the guard was one of the top linemen in the ACC as he was named to the conference's second team. In 2016, he was one of the best in the nation, and claimed All-American status, landing on an impressive four different first teams. Johnson was also a three-year starter, so he has plenty of experience.

Most sites have Johnson going anywhere between the 2nd and fourth round. NFL.com projects him as a 2nd-3rd round pick. Where do you think he lands?
