Cam Johnson is a 49er

Looks like he has some ability. Article was saying if he can hang with our LB group then he deserves a spot on our team. Hope we found a gem!
Hope so too! He will have a huge chip on his shoulder.
First Fleming, now Cam.....

get it done now and not wait, how many times have we seen a situation where they tough it out and then all of a sudden two days before the season starts, they decide they need surgery.

Just went digging around the NFL draft blog and randomly scrolled to post about Cam Johnson -- Steve Muench wrote that he thought Johnson would be a good fit for the Saints in the 3rd round at 89th overall. The post is dated for April 19th

Third round (89th overall)Virginia DE Cam Johnson (Grade: 69) Concerns about Johnson's motor and durability should drop him to the late-third- or early-fourth-round range. He could fit at outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, but he's also a good fit at end in the Saints' 4-3 scheme. And with new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo looking to get more from the front four in terms of pass-rush pressure Johnson could make sense.
He's not a great counterpuncher at this point, but Johnson has the first-step quickness, balance and closing speed to quickly develop into a productive edge rusher at the next level. He doesn't just project as a situational pass-rusher, either. At 6-foot-3¾ and 268 pounds, he's big and strong enough to hold up against the run and capable of developing into a three-down player.

I'm still pumped that we were able to get such a player with our very last pick. I really hope he develops into something for us.

Cam Johnson and Fleming were late round pick by Baalke but they were both grade as mid rounders. So they both have talents that Fangio can develop into backup position or possibly starters. Unfortunately they got injured.
I was liking what I saw of Cam as I watched more of the 4th quarter. jus sayin' ...

Hope so. I think he'll be on of the better picks of the draft in a few years

Yeah, health is the key and he sounds like the perfect SAM too. Haggans can play both SAM & WILL as well. But if we can get this guy healthy, conditioned up, he might be on the 53-man roster at some point. I hope...
