As a sophomore in 2019 he played in 6 games and logged 57 snaps for the Buckeyes. He made no tackles, no assists, and had no stops. In coverage he totaled no pass breakups, no interceptions, and an outstanding QB rating when targetted of .0.

He logged no tackles, no assists, and made no stops. In coverage Johnson had no pass breakups, no interceptions, and surrendered an outstanding QB rating when targetted of .0.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Always seems to find the ball quickly enough to at least get a hand on it. Not afraid to stick his nose into traffic against the run despite his size.
  • Alert defender for zone coverage, showing good understanding of route progressions occurring behind him and a quick burst downhill to break on underneath passes in front of him.
  • Has the length and speed to emerge as a starter two or three years down the line.
  • He’s tall-framed with long arms to match. With his powerful hands, straight-line speed, and fluidity in his hips, turning and chasing downfield shouldn’t be a problem.
  • His length and leaping ability allow him to high-point the ball and make plays. Johnson would have had bigger interception numbers in college had opposing quarterbacks not gone out of their way to avoid him.
  • Changes directions with ease and has the frame to hold up at any spot in the secondary.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Is undersized and underpowered when lining up in press coverage. Johnson simply lacks power in his punch.
  • Gave up far too many big plays in college, especially concerning since Johnson has recovery speed to make up for missteps.
  • Rght now he’s only capable of playing in trail position, and even then he’d likely be draw a lot of flags.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
