Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Big athlete with good height and stands tall in the pocket to survey. the field. Uses good technique, squaring his shoulders to the target and stepping into his throws.
  • While he’s not a burner, Johnson has enough athleticism and speed to make plays with his legs when he takes off as a runner.
  • Accuracy and ball placement are strengths. Johnson can throw the deep ball, and he is at his best on touch passes up the seam.
  • He’s a pure athlete, loose-limbed and flexible. He has the speed to pick up yardage in scramble situations.
  • Johnson plays with a confident demeanor and has the athleticism to move out of the pocket and create plays out of structure.
  • Generally accurate on intermediate and short throws; flashes anticipation and placement on intermediate outs and the ability to lead receivers on deeper throws.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Johnson often holds the ball too long. While Johnson keeps his eyes up while moving, his mechanics get increasingly sloppy once he’s pushed off his spot.
  • Johnson often plays out of control. His mechanics are sloppy, particularly his footwork, and his decision making is suspect.
  • Has a way to go in terms of being able to process coverages and run a multi-progression passing game.
