BIO: All-Conference selection as a senior after leading the Cardinals in tackles with 72/8.5/2. Also intercepted two passes and broke up five more. Three-year starter.
POSITIVES: Athletic linebacker prospect who projects to a number of spots. Scrapes well laterally, fluid changing direction and flashes on the scene. Displays skill in zone coverage and runs with backs or tight ends in pass defense. Fast to the flanks and stays with assignments.
NEGATIVES: Lacks instincts and hesitates reacting to the play. Overall game lacks a physical nature.
ANALYSIS: Offering growth potential and good timed speed, Johnson needs to improve his playing strength and work habits. Could develop into a starting linebacker if he puts forth the effort.
