Former Alabama linebacker Nico Johnson wants to play in the NFL.  He's won a few national championships and finished third on the Crimson Tide last year in tackles.

Still, several draft analysts say Johnson will not likely make it to the first round.  One of the questions a lot of scouts ask him involve why he didn't receive more playing time while in Tuscaloosa.

"That's the system Coach Saban has," said Johnson.  "He gives every player a role and each player takes advantage the best they can and like I told them, I didn't want to argue with his decision or anything because I didn't want him to think I was selfish."
