Hurricanes Cornerback To Work Out For Dolphins

University of Miami cornerback Bruce Johnson has been scheduled for a private workout with the Miami Dolphins on Friday, according to a league source.
Johnson ran a 4.40 in the 40-yard dash at his campus Pro Day workout after clocking a 4.49 at the NFL Scouting Combine.
At his Pro Day, Johnson registered a 38 1/2 inch vertical leap and a 10-4 broad jump. He improved by four inches in the vertical leap from his combine performance.
Johnson, who’s listed at 5’10,” 170 pounds, was the only Miami player invited to the scouting combine.
“I was in my comfort zone,” Johnson told Cane Sport following his Pro Day. “I turned some heads. I felt I performed real well. I think I could raise my stock up since I did well in Indy and here.”
When asked if he thought he would be drafted between the fourth round and the sixth round, Johnson replied: “I felt like they had me predicted to go low, but if I could show my ability, I could raise my draft stock up.”
Johnson, who also ran track in college,  is a relative of Seattle Seahawks cornerback Kelly Jennings.

    I could see him maybe falling to the 7th round, and as a Saints fan and a strong believer that any defender from the U can be successful in the NFL, so if he’s there I think the Saints should give him a look.
