The article profiles football player Larry Johnson. Johnson is a big back who's capable of getting the tough yards between the tackles, but he also has uncommon quickness for his size, allowing him to bounce runs outside when necessary. Al Wilson, the anchor of the Broncos' defense, is extremely athletic and has sideline-to-sideline range. A relentless defender, he sometimes is too aggressive, leading him to over-pursue and get out of position.
