BIOGRAPHY: Junior-college transfer who became a full-time starter last season and posted career-high numbers of 174/1106/12 on the ground and 34/220 as a pass-catcher. Junior-year totals included 403 rushing yards.
POSITIVES: Explosive straight-line ball-carrier who works hard. Quickly gets through the hole, possesses a burst of speed, and can run to daylight in the open field. Displays good vision, avoids piles, and keeps his feet moving up the field.
NEGATIVES: Mostly a straight-line runner who shows marginal quickness trying to cut back against the grain. Lacks the frame to be an interior runner.
ANALYSIS: Johnson is a competitive ball-carrier who could find a spot on a roster as a third running back.
