BIOGRAPHY: Junior college transfer who has played extensively as a rotational lineman the past two years. Senior totals included 21 tackles with four tackles for losses after 15/3/2.5 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Athletic prospect with a developing game. Fires off the snap with a great first step, plays with excellent pad level and flashes power. Immediately changes direction, has a burst of closing speed and plays with good balance. Holds his ground against blockers.
NEGATIVES: Displays marginal pass-rushing skills. Slow shedding blocks. Cannot drop off the line in space nor does he show much lateral speed.
ANALYSIS: Sporadically displaying skill the past two seasons, Johnson put it together at the Senior Bowl and the light has seemingly gone on. Has an unpolished game, yet offers enough upside to develop into a starter.
