The New England Patriots will get a closer look at a likely top-25 pick.
Wake Forest cornerback Kevin Johnson has a workout scheduled with the Patriots, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post and The Baltimore Sun reported Monday evening.
A projected first-round selection on April 30, Johnson is making his share of final impressions this month. He also has upcoming workouts with the Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles, Baltimore Ravens and Arizona Cardinals. And he has already visited with the Dallas Cowboys and worked out for the San Diego Chargers, according to Wilson.
Johnson appeared in 47 games over his Wake Forest career, starting 41. He finished with 189 tackles, seven interceptions, 38 pass deflections and three forced fumbles.
And as a redshirt senior, the 6-foot, 188-pound Johnson conceded just 24 completions on the way to being named second-team All-ACC.
An invitee to the NFL Scouting Combine in February, the Demon Deacons corner notched a 6.79 three-cone drill, a 3.89 short-shuttle, as well as a 41.5-inch vertical jump and 130-inch broad, which all placed in the top tier for the position.
