Signing Johnston, who was heading to college as an "old" 20 yr old, is like signing Read out of Jr, before he went, late also, to Bemidji.
Some guys just fall off the radar, it's the scouts jobs to dig deeper and look for talent other teams might have overlooked.
One advantage rich teams have, in a cap world, is that there is no cap on scouting expenditures.
