Kyle Johnson has joined the Cardinals as a college scout, the team announced Monday.
Johnson will primarily evaluate college players in the Northeast region of the country, as well as serve as the Cardinals’ representative with the National Football Scouting service. He joins the Cardinals following a six-year NFL career as a fullback with Denver (2002-07), where he appeared in 45 regular-season games with 24 starts and also played in two postseason contests.
Johnson played collegiately at Syracuse, where he was a two-time team captain in 2000-01 and a three-time All-Big East Conference Academic selection. He was selected by Carolina in the fifth round (145th overall) of the 2002 draft. Johnson earned his undergraduate degree from Syracuse in 2000 and a master’s of business administration from Syracuse in 2008.
In addition, the Cardinals announced that Dru Grigson will now serve as a regional scout for the Eastern half of the country, Quentin Harris was promoted to assistant pro personnel director, and college scout Mike Boni will now evaluate players in the Midwest and Eastern areas of the country.
