Scouting Report: Strengths
- Johnson is a natural playmaker, at his best with the ball in his hands.
- Shows good sense as a route runner and provides an enormous catch radius over the middle of the field. He has soft hands and uses his frame effectively to shield defenders, making him a major threat in the red zone.
- Johnson has strong hands and is extremely competitive, and Johnson has an innate sense of timing when it comes to elevating and high-pointing balls.
- When used downfield, he shows the ball-tracking skills and hand-eye coordination to make the adjustment on underthrown balls and back-shoulder throws.
- He’s also a catch-and-run threat, a creative runner who has good vision in the open field; he’ll be an option to return kicks as well.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Johnson fights hard for the ball, but Johnson too often fights to catch it; there are too many double catches on his highlight reel. It shows up in contested-catch situations in the red zone.
- He doesn’t have the ability as a run blocker or the violent run-after-catch ability.
- Johnson lacks the twitch to create consistent separation, and despite his size and ability to track the ball downfield, he isn’t great on contested catches.
- He’ll be coming to the NFL from a wide-open spread offense in which he ran a limited route tree.
