Jaguars sign seventh-round pick, former UCF RB Storm Johnson
MAY 20, 2014 4:25p ET
Johnson, a college teammate the past two years of Jaguars first-round pick Blake Bortles, had five 100-yard rushing games as a junior while leading the All-American Athletic Conference in rushing touchdowns with 14. He also caught 30 passes from Bortles for 260 yards and three TDs.
Johnson joins center Luke Bowanko, a sixth-round selection out of Virginia, as rookies who have signed with the Jaguars since being drafted less than two weeks ago. Johnson is expected to compete with free-agent pickup Toby Gerhart and Jordan Todman for playing time at the spot held the past five years by Maurice Jones-Drew.
