Conference: Non-Division I
40 Time: 4.47
Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors every season since his sophomore campaign. Senior totals included 55/3/9 after 46/5/3 as a junior.
Positives: Quick, feisty cornerback with good ball skills. Smooth transitioning with opponents off the line, can flip his hips, and displays good overall awareness. Possesses a burst to the ball out of his plant, plays heads-up football and shows a physical nature to his game. Voluntarily defends runs or screen passes. Productive in the past as a kick returner.
Negatives: Not a sure-handed tackler. He lacks size and struggles getting off blocks. Does not show the top end speed.
Analysis: Johnson has been very productive throughout his college career and looks best suited to play in a zone system or backed off the line of scrimmage. He possesses the skills necessary to be used as a dime back at the next level, and his returned skills are added value.
