Knoxville, Tn -    It's that time of year for college football's preseason watch lists to be released, and there's a familiar name that's going to be popping up a lot.
   That, of course, is Tennessee linebacker A-J Johnson.
   Johnson found his name on the Bednarik award watch list, given to the nation's best defensive player.    
   That's no surprise considering the talent of the guy that answers to "the beast."
    He easily could have left for the draft last year, but he's back, and he's ready to prove he made the right decision. we'll likely see Johnson on at least two more lists before it's all over. The Nagurski award, which is another one for best defensive player, and the Butkus award, given to the best linebacker.
