RB - CHI
Expert NoteView More Notes
Rookie running back Roschon Johnson posted an absurd 49% missed tackle rate in 2022, while also finishing fourth in yards after contact per attempt among the 2023 draft class. Simply put, he would be talked about much more had he not been seated on the depth chart behind college football's best running back: Bijan Robinson.
He only started five games in 47 total games played at Texas.
But Johnson possesses bell-cow size at 6 feet and 219 pounds with tenacity to boot. He jumped 122 inches in the broad jump (78th percentile) at the NFL Scouting Combine
Johnson was selected by the Chicago Bears in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL Draft and will compete with veterans D'Onta Foreman and Khalil Herbert for snaps. Johnson will find earning playing time will be much easier to do competing with the likes of non-Bijan Robinson running backs.
Don't be surprised if RJ beats out Foreman by the time training camp concludes. His trusted work on special teams and pass protection should get him on the field sooner rather than later.

The Chicago Bears have selected RB Roschon Johnson with the No. 115 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
Johnson will join a Chicago backfield featuring Khalil Herbert and D'Onta Foreman. Herbert has played well over his first two years in the league, while Foreman signed a one-year deal this offseason. Therefore, Johnson likely has limited fantasy upside in 2023, barring an injury to Herbert of Foreman. However, the former Texas running back is worth a mid-round pick in rookie dynasty drafts as he could have a larger role in 2024.
