BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who posted 36/613/7 as a senior when he also averaged 9.6 yards on 24 punt returns with one touchdown. Junior-year totals included 30 receptions with a 12.7-yard average on 19 punt returns.
POSITIVES: Athletic receiver who.s shown steady progress the past three years. Adjusts to the errant throw well, makes the difficult reception in contorted positions, and looks the pass into his hands. Comes back to the quarterback or finds the clearing in the defense to make himself an available target. Effective downfield blocker. Impacts the game returning punts by showing patience, following blocks, and finding the running lanes.
NEGATIVES: Slowly releases off the line into routes. Does not have the second gear.
ANALYSIS: Johnson is a natural receiver who does the little things well. A fifth receiver at the next level, he must make his mark as a return specialist.
