BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two seasons and was named as an All-American after his senior campaign.

POSITIVES: "King sized lineman only effective in a very small area. Blocks with good lean, keeps his feet moving and powerful at the point of attack. Quickly gets into blocks, extends his hands and controls defenders once engaged in a block. Can be a dominant and overwhelming, displaying the ability to completely engulf or swallow up defenders."

NEGATIVES: "Lumbers about the field, not light on his feet, and struggles handling quick or speedy opponents. Must improve his blocking balance. Really does not show a nasty streak or consistently work to finish blocks."

ANALYSIS: "Johnson has been a productive lineman at LSU, yet he is a marginal athlete who's gotten by thanks to his size. His ability to completely annihilate opponents because of his size is Johnson's most appealing characteristic for the next level. He is a football player who needs a lot of work on his overall game to have any shot at breaking into a starting lineup on the NFL level."

PROJECTION: Fifth/Sixth Round
