BIOGRAPHY: "Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two seasons. Receiving totals last year included 22/356/5, with
a 16.2-yard average per catch. Junior totals included 10/24/3."
POSITIVES: "Relatively athletic tight end who flashes skill on the field. Breaks down well playing with good knee bend, quickly releases
off the line into pass routes, and effectively uses his hands to get off jams, then separates from opponents. Adjusts to the
errant throw, gets vertical in midair for the difficult reception, and extends to make some outstanding receptions. Solid
position blocker with above-average strength at the point. Turns opponents off the ball, and effective when he stays with
NEGATIVES: "Not overly involved in the offense. Lacks the soft, natural pass catching hands. Does not consistently work to finish blocks."
ANALYSIS: "Johnson lacks classic tight end height, yet he has enough size and speed to play the position. He is best in a system that
consistently puts him in motion in the backfield or uses his skills at the H-back position. Johnson could end up as a team's
third tight end if he shows well in camp this summer."
