Durrell Johnson Lands on Senior Bowl Watch List & College Football America Yearbook’s 2021 Independent Preseason Starting Lineup

Liberty Flames

Liberty defensive lineman Durrell Johnson is on both the Reese’s Senior Bowl Watch List and the 2021 College Football America Yearbook Preseason Independent Starting Lineup.

Johnson is one of three Independent players on the College Football America Yearbook Starting Lineup that also made it onto the Reese’s Senior Bowl Watch List.

Johnson led the Flames with 8.5 sacks and 11.5 tackles for loss as he earned Phil Steele All-Independent First-Team selection.

The 2021 College Football America Yearbook features six pages of Independent content, including an overall preview, a spotlight piece on a stadium, the Independent Starting Lineup, all team schedules and a half-page devoted to each program.

The College Football America 2021 Yearbook features more than 900 college football teams from the United States and Canada in more than 250 striking, full-color pages. That includes every team from the NCAA (FBS, FCS, Division II and Division III), NAIA, NJCAA, CCCAA and U Sports (Canada). It also includes updates on club football, one-year postgraduate prep/sports academies and Mexican college football, along with dozens of action shots and stadium photos taken by the CFA staff.

Only college seniors and fourth-year junior graduates are eligible for the Senior Bowl. Fourth-year junior graduates must have graduated by the December prior to the game to be eligible.

The Senior Bowl will be played on Feb. 5, 2022, in Mobile, Alabama. In the 2021 NFL Draft, 106 Senior Bowl players were drafted, with 36 of them taken in the first three rounds.
