David Johnson was drafted in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft and has quickly become one of the best running backs in the league.
His best asset is his ability to straight up embarrass defenders who try to haul him down. Johnson had perhaps the best run of the 2015 season against the Eagles last December. On Sunday, he had the best run of the young 2016 season when he twirled and stiff-armed his way to a big gain against the Patriots.
Here is a list of the Patriots defenders he embarrassed and the exact moments he embarrassed them.
Dont’a Hightower (No. 54), Logan Ryan (No. 26), Patrick Chung (No. 23), Vincent Valentine (No. 99), Jamie Collins (No. 91)
You can’t see them all because they’re in the big ‘ol embarrassed pile whereput them after his spin move. Valentine thought he had wrapped up, but the back shook him off by running in a circle and making the Patriots’ defenders crash into each other like incompetent cartoon henchmen.
Devin McCourty (No. 32)
McCourty would eventually make the touchdown-saving tackle, but not before getting stiff-armed and thoroughly embarrassed by Johnson.
Duron Harmon (No. 30)
