Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Johnson accelerates quickly and possesses good straight-line speed. He shows solid ball-tracking skills and body control downfield, able to adjust to the off-target throw.
  • Johnson transitions quickly from receiver to runner, and Johnson has enough speed to threaten the seam.
  • Has a knack for getting open and is a quarterback's best friend - passers just need to toss the ball in his area and he'll come down with it.
  • A versatile weapon, proving to be effective inside in the slot and outside on the perimeter. Makes plays at all levels of the field.
  • He’s a creative runner with good vision in the open field. He’ll contribute as a run blocker on the perimeter. He’s also a possible return specialist.
  • Strong runner with the ball with enough agility to make defenders miss in the open field.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Johnson isn’t going to overwhelm opposing defensive backs with speed and athleticism.
  • He’s not going to threaten to take the top off of a defense.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
