Zeandae Johnson DE California Draft Profile

Minnesota Vikings Signed as an undrafted free agent by Minnesota Vikings
Strengths
  • More of a hustling pass rusher than an accomplished or natural one, he'll make his mark as a fifth or sixth defensive lineman.
  • Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
  • Combines strength and footwork to fill holes inside, as well. Recovers from cut blocks or falling on his way to make a tackle.
  • Delivers a strong punch and uses his hands to shed blocks to make plays in the hole or outside the box. Uses lower-body strength to anchor inside.
  • Lower than offensive lineman on every short-yardage play. Good agility and ability to change direction for his size.
Weaknesses
  • Might be limited to one-gap systems. Agility isn't a question but misses tackles when he doesn't square and break down.
  • Good strength, though his marginal arm length limits his ability to grab hold of ballcarriers as they run by.
  • Average athletically with average straight line speed and tight hips. Not a natural bender. Lacks secondary pass-rush moves.
  • Misses tackles, even when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.
  • Sees the ball well but is stuck on blocks when head-up; does not shed to make plays often enough.
