    Can't wait to see Leonard have that break out year we all think he can. He is growing up right before our eyes. I look for some serious highlights from him this year.

    We may, conceivably, have 2 first team all conference DB's on this team. I'd guess that hasn't happened in a very long team. Plus Benton and O'Connell are solid, experienced players as well. We actually have a fairly talented defensive backfield.

    Had know idea he has developed a friendship with Ellis Hobbs III. That makes me excited.

    Re: Meet the new Leonard Johnson

    2 years ago I thought LJ was one of the only players we had that resembled a Big 12 player. Great to hear he is working hard on and off the field. He will have a chance to be an NFL player.

    Nice! Hopefully he can take some Kick returns this year.

    Personally, I want my defensive MVP candidates (LJ and Sims) as far away from Kick returning as possible. I know LJ can be a game breaker back there, but it is not worth the injury risk. We need him on D a lot more. Lets let back up WRs and RBs take the returning duties instead of risking the core of our defense.

    My $.02

    Re: Meet the new Leonard Johnson

    For the ISU defense to be somewhat successful, LJ needs to be at shut-down corner level and a ball-hawk. Can't afford him to be overthinking plays or letting his emotions get the best of him.

    If the maturity has improved, he's gonna be dangerous out there.

    Yeah, this always makes for a good debate. Its like when Mizzou was using Maclin as a kick returner. I can never decide if that is a good idea. Although, it sure seemed like it when he took one to the house against Northwestern in their bowl game that year. Northwestern finally kicked it to him right before half. Oops.

    What about that kid we got from Omaha? Ran like a 4.2? I thought he'd have a shot at KR duties.

    EDIT: I'm thinking of Teddy Lampkin and I believe he won't be here til next year. My bad.

    I imagine Bobby Elliott had something to do with that. Elliott was the coach that convinced Ellis to move from being a running back to a D-back his freshman year.
