Position:WR Class: Sr School:
Big Ten Ht., Wt.: 5'11½, 199 40 Time: 4.72 Grade: 2.56
BIO: Two-year starter who caught 36/436/2 last season, also averaging eight yards on 17 punt returns. Had a breakout campaign as a junior posting 53/837/5.
POSITIVES: Technically sound pass-catcher that brings a special teams element to his game. Quick releasing off the line, solid route runner and extends his hands, offering the quarterback a nice target. Hand catcher that looks the ball in or pulls the pass from out of a crowd. Competitive and works hard in practice and during the game.
NEGATIVES: More quick than fast, only marginal speed and not getting separation down the field. Does not have the body type to be classified as a possession receiver.
ANALYSIS: After a big junior campaign, Johnson took a step back and did not really improve in 2003. Possesses adequate natural skills but must really stand out on special teams to have a shot this in the NFL.
