Falcons Training Camp: Mike Johnson Splitting Time Between Guard, Tackle

Falcons head coach Mike Smith is making it a priority during training camp that players are working at multiple positions across the offensive line. Mike Johnson has worked primarily at guard although he did fill in from time to time at tackle during his time at Alabama.

Currently Johnson doesn't figure to be in the competition at right guard but has settled into back up at right tackle behind Tyson Clabo. Johnson figures that being capable of playing both positions on the offensive line improves his chances to sticking on the roster.

"I think it's huge," he said. "Obviously, there are some set positions on the offensive line and there are some that aren't. The more that I can work on and play in games and get on film to show what I can do, the better chance that I have of making the team."
