Understated O-Line Coach Paul Boudreau has to love what happened shortly after 10 pm Friday night. The most experienced offensive lineman on the NCAA Champion Alabama Crimson Tide football team (with 36 straight starts) became an Atlanta Falcon on the final pick of the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Mike Johnson played both guard positions and left tackle for the Tide, and he’s a prototypical Dimitroff selection: a smart, no-nonsense player who blocked for a Heisman Trophy winner on the best team in college football. And his maturity and work ethic arrived at an early age. According to his bio on the University of Alabama Football site, Johnson didn’t miss a single practice or weight room session during his four-years playing football at Pine Forest High School in Pensacola, Florida.
