Safety John Johnson was the first Boston College player off of the board in the 2017 NFL Draft. Johnson was selected in the 3rd round at pick #91 overall. Here was some reaction on Twitter to the pick:

On ESPN's live coverage Mel Kiper and Todd McShay had similar views on what Johnson does well and what he has to work on. Kiper was a little more positive than McShay:

Kiper- "He didn't have a lot of fanfare but he developed throughout his career into a good prospect. He's got good ball skills. He isn't one of those highlight reel tacklers but he can break it down in space."

McShay-"The thing that drove me crazy breaking down his tape is inconsistent angles and a lot of missed tackles. He's got to clean that area of his game up. It'snot a toughness question. It's the instinct and angles when it comes to defending the run."

BCI anticipates that fellow Eagle Matt Milano will come off of the board sometime today.
