I didn’t do a ton of homework on Running Backs but all my smart friends LOVE Roschon Johnson— Robert Schmitz (@robertkschmitz) April 29, 2023
Big, punishing runner — the #Bears have a type in the backfield, I bet the Bears are looking to add more between-OT running with guys like him. I’ll have more once I get into his tape
Bears southwest area scout John Syty on RB Roschon Johnson: "He fits everything Ryan and Matt are trying to accomplish. He’s a HITS principle guy. He just emulates everything we want a Chicago Bear to be. ... The 'it' factor about this kid is special."— Adam Jahns (@adamjahns) April 29, 2023

Bears fans who liked David Montgomery are also going to like Roschon Johnson.— Michael Ernst (@mj_ernst) April 29, 2023
Pretty sure Roschon Johnson will be RB1 in Chicago no later than about week 4. If he was at a different school, I think he goes round 2.— Bill Zimmerman (@ZimmermanSXM) April 29, 2023
The University of Texas is lucky to have someone like Roschon Johnson— CJ Vogel (@CJVogel_TFB) April 29, 2023
