Kimball 411

Sports are my life. SMU is my passion. Football is my religion. Mustangs in the Pros. Here's the 411!

Darius Johnson (WR)


Darius Johnson was signed as a UDFA to the Atlanta Falcons on April 27, 2013. He is currently an NFL free agent.

Darius played in four games as a freshman, catching 10 passes for 107 yards. He had a beautiful diving TD grab in the season-opening win against SFA. He was named to the Conference USA All-Freshman Team.
During his sophomore season, he saw playing time in 13 games with 10 starts. Darius had 78 receptions for 845 yards and six touchdowns. He teamed with Cole Beasley to accumulate 165 receptions, a single-season tandem record and teamed with Aldrick Robinson to tie a single-season tandem record of 20 touchdowns. He returned 10 punts and caught seven passes for two touchdowns. He had 12 receptions (ninth highest single-game total) and a touchdown at Navy, notched eight catches, 102 yards and a touchdown against Tulsa, and hauled in nine throws for 105 yards in the C-USA Championship Game at UCF. He had a season-high 152 receiving yards in the Armed Forces Bowl.
In his junior season, he was named first-team All-C-USA, and was named MVP in back-to-back bowl games. He wrapped up 2011 with a seven-catch, 120-yard, one-TD performance in SMU’s BBVA Compass Bowl win over Pitt. He had 79 catches for 1,188 yards and eight TDs on the season and ranked fourth in the league in yards per game (86.0) and sixth in receptions per game, averaging 6.0. He broke out with an eight-catch, 127-yard game against Northwestern State and followed that up with a two-TD, 10-catch, 116-yard day at Memphis. He put his stamp on the TCU win, notching 152 receiving yards for his third straight 100-yard game and tying career highs with 12 catches and two receiving TDs. He returned to the century club with a seven-catch, 135-yard performance in the Tulane win and notched eight grabs for 123 yards and a TD in the regular season finale against Rice.
In his senior season, Darius had 64 receptions for 787 yards and 5 touchdowns.

Darius was released by the Falcons on August 31, 2013 as a part of the final roster cuts, but was signed to the practice squad the following day (September 1, 2013).

He was signed to the active roster on October 19, 2013 and scored his first regular season touchdown on November 10, 2013.

He was waived by the Falcons on July 25 before Training Camp.
