He was drafted by the Titans 24th overall in 2008, after running a record-tying 4.24 sec in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. In his second year of professional football, he won the NFL rushing title with 2,006 yards (only the sixth player ever to break 2,000), and broke Marshall Faulk's record of total yards from scrimmage with 2,509. He was named the NFL's Offensive Player of the Year in 2009. Johnson played football at Olympia High School in Orlando. Johnson was also a track star at Olympia High.
