Draft Profile: Bio
Durrell Johnson from ASA College (New York) High School was rated a star recruit by ESPN and handed a 2 star grade by 247 Sports. Following high school, Johnson opted to join Liberty.

In 2020 as a freshman Johnson saw action in 11 games and played on a total of 504 snaps for the Flames. He recorded 22 tackles, 4 assists, while adding 24 stops. In coverage Johnson notched up one pass break up, one interception, and a QB rating when targetted of 80.0. As a pass rusher, he added 32 total pressures, which included 16 QB hurries, 6 QB hits, and 10 sacks on the season.

As a sophomore for the Flames in 2021 Johnson played in 9 games and took part on 312 snaps for the Flames. He recorded 19 tackles, 3 assists, while adding 16 stops. As a pass rusher, he chalked up 19 total pressures, and 15 QB hurries, 4 QB hits, and no sacks during the year.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Challenges inside with quickness and strong hands. Run-and-chase defender who can leave a mark.
  • He's not an elite pass rusher and projects as a left end in a 4-3 defense. If he layers on more muscle, he might fit in the 3-4. Size, strength and versatility should push him into the top 75 picks.
  • Flashes nimble feet to chase running backs and mobile quarterbacks to the sideline when lined up at end. Spins off blocks to get back into the play.
  • Has a quick burst off the line and times the snap well. Good upper-body strength and length to lock-out his opponent and at least moderate lateral agility to slide inside or spill out to contain.
  • Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Rarely the first player off the snap, even when lined up over the ball, but his length, effort and short-area quickness still pressures double teams and helps penetrate gaps.
  • Doesn't change direction easily. Can be late off the snap.
