He was the 229th pick overall.
Johnson recently completed his collegiate career with the Oklahoma Sooners and played in the BCS title game against the Florida Gators in January in Miami.
He was at home in Gilmer when the selection was announced. The Mirror will have more on this in Wednesday's issue.
He is the first former Buckeye drafted since Kenny Pettway was selected in 2005 by the Houston Texans, also in the seventh round (227th overall).
