The 2012 primarily backup will cap his senior season by becoming the fifth Buckeye to participate in a post-season all-star game.

Part-time Ohio State starter Orhian Johnson will wrap his college football playing career by showing off to NFL scouts what he prospectively brings to the pro ranks in the 2013 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, the game's organizers and Ohio State announced Monday morning. Johnson spent the better part of the last two seasons battling for playing time with senior-to-be C.J. Barnett. Johnson joins Nathan Williams, John Simon, Reid Fragel, and Travis Howard who'd all agreed previously to play in college football all-star games.

During Johnson's senior campaign in 2012, the free safety played in all 12 games recording 39 tackles (19 solo). Johnson also had two interceptions on the year as well as a fourth best on the team seven pass breakups. Johnson received credit for getting a hand in on a blocked kick as well.

While a third day pick at best, Johnson has decent measurables for a safety at 6'2" 210 pounds. He was timed out of high school running a 40 yard dash in the 4.5 range. Though he's unlikely to be an impact player, Johnson could contribute on special teams from day one and provide depth for any secondary looking to collect talented but raw assets.
