RB Storm Johnson - Free Agent
|6-0, 209||Born: 7-10-1992||College: UCF||Drafted: Round 7, pick 222 (2014)|
2014 Week 5 vs PIT (4 / 27 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The rookie running back got his first carry of his career in the second quarter. He was immediately given space up the middle of the defense and scampered forward for eight yards. The play was negated by a penalty though. Johnson's second carry came midway through the third quarter, when he broke off a big gain on a well-blocked run. This play wasn't negated for penalty though. Johnson followed that up with a more impressive run, as he was confronted in the backfield by a defender forcing him to cutback upfield for a good gain. Johnson was clearly the most impressive back the Jaguars had in this game.
2014 Week 6 vs TEN (10 / 21 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / -4 / 0 rec)
Storm Johnson got the first start of his career with Toby Gerhart inactive. Gerhart has struggled behind the Jaguars offensive line and Johnson quickly discovered how tough it is to be the Jaguars primary back. Just like Gerhart, Johnson added plenty of evidence to support the theory that it doesn't really matter who plays running back in Jacksonville behind that offensive line.
2014 Week 7 vs CLE (6 / 16 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Johnson was very much the second option for the Jaguars in this game. He had only a handful of touches and he did very little to suggest he deserved more over Robinson. His most impressive play was a short touchdown run when he found his way to the outside for a relatively easy score.
2014 Week 15 vs BAL (6 / 19 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
With Denard Robinson sidelined, Johnson got more exposure from the backfield. He broke off one big run early on when he held his balance at the line of scrimmage to run down the sideline. Johnson was mostly bottled up and saw no meaningful touches during the second half when the Jaguars moved to more of a pass-oriented approach.
