Tackle Paris Johnson is making the jump to the NFL.

Johnson announced on Tuesday that he will give up his remaining eligibility at Ohio State in order to enter this year’s draft pool. Johnson said in his announcement that he arrived in Columbus hoping to graduate from the school and make an All-American team before moving on and he accomplished both of those goals in the past year.

Johnson moved from right guard to left tackle for his final collegiate season and his success at the spot will likely keep him on the outside of the line at the NFL level.

Draft analysts rank Johnson at the top of this year’s offensive line prospects and he’s widely expected to be a first-round pick in April. Tuesday’s announcement officially puts him on the path to hearing his name called.

  1. Great target for the Bears in a trade down with Atlanta or Carolina.

    OT’s get over-drafted to begin with so don’t day dream about landing this kid with a pick that starts with a 1.

    They used to get over drafted This past 10 years of OT’s is the same as the QB, hit or miss. Teams seem to be getting smarter about QB’s AND OT’s. I bet that no one trades with the Bears. Colts might be dumb enough to move up with the Cardinals. Moving up 1 spot for a QB usually works out…I’m sure there’s a T-shirt somewhere in Chicago with that saying on it.
