Miami Hurricanes 2022 Path to the NFL Draft: DE Deandre Johnson

In recent years, Miami has been a huge beneficiary of the NCAA Transfer Portal, and have largely benefited on the defensive line. Namely, since 2019, Miami has welcomed premier pass rushers in Jaelan Phillips and Quincy Roche, as well as Trevon Hill - all of whom have varying degrees of exposure to NFL franchises in their early careers.

This past season, Miami clearly needed reinforcements on that defensive line after losing Phillips, Roche, and Gregory Roussaeu, so the Canes explored the portal yet again. The Canes looked no further than a Miami Southridge product as they locked in Deandre Johnson, who previously played for Tennessee.
