QB Blake Bortles has sucked up all of the national attention when it comes to Central Florida prospects, which has left RB Storm Johnson flying under the radar. Bortles, a potential first overall pick, rightfully carries far more hype than Johnson, who didn't land in ESPN NFL Insider Mel Kiper Jr.'s Top 10 RB rankings.
