Scouting Report: Strengths
- 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.
- Balanced, savvy route runner with top field awareness, setting up and selling routes beautifully.
- Tracks the ball well downfield and shows good ball skills, including the ability to go up and high-point it in contested-catch situations.
- Johnson transitions quickly from receiver to runner, and Johnson has enough speed to threaten the seam.
- A fluid mover capable of creating some separation over the middle of the field, he has the long arms and soft hands to provide a sizable catch radius.
- Has the strong hands any NFL wide receiver coach and quarterback would covet. Tracks the deep ball over either shoulder and brings in passes fluidly without breaking stride downfield.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- He’s elusive with the ball in his hands, but Johnson won’t break a lot of tackles. Because getting separation is going to be an issue, he’s likely going to need to line up off the line of scrimmage.
- He’ll have to develop a better feel for sitting down against zone coverage.
- Will have limitations against physical cornerbacks because of his thin frame. If locked up at the line, he lacks the upper-body strength to fight off the press with his hands.
