Scouting Report: Strengths
  • His hand use is excellent; he’s strong in the upper body and consistently swats away blockers.
  • Short, stumpy build so Johnson typically wins the leverage battle. When he does so, Chapman can be tough to move, even showing the ability to handle double-teams.
  • His motor is excellent, and he’s quick to locate the ball and make plays against the run.
  • He’s very instinctive when it comes to countering and solid with overall hand usage.
  • Played with good leverage, even on the nose, despite average bulk. Hustle defender with a good bull rush inside that can close and get home when quarterbacks leave the pocket.
  • Can make the impressive chest-to-chest bear hug tackle in the hole due to his ability to wreak havoc in the backfield.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • His spin move is a bit slow and mechanical. He’s susceptible to cut blocks, a tactic that was used on him often
  • While Johnson has violent hands, he uses them too inconsistently. Johnson tends to let blockers get into his chest, and he’ll waste time hand fighting due to a limited array of pass rush moves.
  • Johnson doesn’t move well laterally and doesn’t have a lot of range when it comes to pursuing on the backside.
