Scouting Report: Strengths
- He’s at his best working in space, showing the quickness and vision of a return specialist. His stop-start ability allows him to create initial separation.
- Johnson shows decent burst and straight-line speed to turn in big plays.
- A big back with very good feet. He’s a decisive runner with good vision; he’ll locate his hole and get through it more quickly than you’d expect considering his size.
- He’s aggressive and willing, with more than enough size, when asked to chip block or pick up blitzers. He has the potential to be one of the league’s best in that area.
- He has the natural power to shed tacklers, and Johnson consistently falls forward. He also has enough wiggle to keep defenders from squaring him up.
- He’s patient, letting blocks develop then accelerating. Johnson runs with a good forward lean and consistently falls forward.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Johnson really isn’t a guy who will create a lot of separation.
- Johnson doesn’t have the ability as a run blocker or the violent run-after-catch ability.
- He’s more of a cut blocker in pass protection as opposed to a guy who will stick his face in against the blitz, although that is a correctable flaw.
