THE FLATS — With the 2017 NFL regular season coming to a close, Georgia Tech had a total of four #ProJackets in Harrison Butker, Shaq Mason, Derrick Morgan and Isaiah Johnson make the NFL Playoffs with their respective teams.

Johnson made his season debut on Sunday, as he picked up six total tackles for the Los Angeles Rams in their loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Johnson, who was active the last three weeks of the season for the Rams, and L.A. host the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday at 8:15 p.m. ET on NBC.
