BIOGRAPHY: Broke into the starting lineup as a senior after backing up Tulsa star Paul Smith the previous three years. Senior totals
POSITIVES: Johnson did a solid job during his first year as a starter underneath center last season and showed enough skill to get a
look in camp this summer.
NEGATIVES: Indecisive under pressure and will make questionable passes into coverage. Lacks the quick release, and cannot drive the deep
pass on a consistent basis. Not always on the same page as receivers. Marginal pass placement, and he throws too many passes
high of the mark or behind wideouts.
ANALYSIS: Patient signal caller with developmental potential. Sells the ball fakes, moves around the pocket to give himself a better
view of the field and buys time for receivers. Consistently challenges the vertical game, identifies the open wideout, and
does not force passes into coverage receivers. Flashes the ability to throw beautiful strikes 60 yards down the field. Eludes
the rush and takes off up the field, carrying the ball if nothing is available.
