BIOGRAPHY: Posted 33/8.5/5 numbers as a starter last year. Missed the .05 season after he was expelled from school for sexual misconduct. Missed Penn State.s bowl game when he was again removed from the team.
POSITIVES: Undersized, penetrating lineman who plays with a lot of explosion. Quickly gets off the snap and looks like he was shot out of a cannon at times. Plays with terrific leverage, keeps his feet moving on contact and possesses a burst of closing speed.
NEGATIVES: Lacks bulk and handled at the point. Has shown himself to be very immature off the field, which has severely cost him.
ANALYSIS: A penetrating one-gap tackle, Johnson offers potential at the next level that will never be realized unless he grows up and stays out of trouble.
