Biography: Posted totals 28/1/16 as a senior, when he moved into the starting lineup after 49/2/5 as a junior, when he was used primarily as Alabama's nickel back.
Positives: Nice-sized bump-and-run cover corner with a high upside. Plays with a large degree of quickness, feisty, and works hard to make plays. Possesses a sense of timing, effective facing the action, and displays good overall awareness. Quick flipping his hips to transition with opponents off the line, displays a quick burst to the ball out of his plant, and quickly closes to the action.
Negatives: Better facing the action and struggles with his back to the ball. Does not display top end speed on the field. Tends to lose a sense of where he is in relation to opponents.
Analysis: Johnson is a sturdy cornerback who plays an aggressive style of football. He may be best in a zone system, but he can also be used in bump-and-run coverage if he irons out the details of his position.
