Notes:

His legal name is Jeremy Johnson but goes by Lane as a tribute to his mother. Starred in track as a Texas prep. Saw action in all 12 games in 2008, recording 35 tackles, eight pass breakups and one interception with two tackles for loss. Totaled 21-2-0 in nine contests in ’09 and managed 33-9-1 while playing in all 11 games (four starts) in ’10. Wore jersey No. 24 prior to senior season. Made 10 starts at cornerback in ’11 and logged 44-4-2 with one tackle for loss and one sack. Had nine career kickoff returns for 174 yards (19.3-yard average). Named Defensive MVP at the Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game after making eight tackles and breaking up a pass. 

Positives:

Has nice length. Thin ankles. Quick feet. Has man-cover skills to stay in the hip pocket. Did not look out of place when he stepped up in class (see LSU and SMU games). Fluid mover. Willing hitter. 

Negatives:

Has small hands. Only a 11⁄2-year starter. Press technique needs work. Average ball skills and production — only four career interceptions. Did not regularly face top competition. 

Summary:

Lean, high-cut, long-levered, underdeveloped corner who showed intriguing physicality against LSU and in postseason all-star competition and has shown enough upside to warrant interest as a No. 4 or No. 5 corner and special-teams contributor.
