Overview

Johnson is a big, strong linebacker that could fit inside or outside at the next level. He is a solid tackler that plays well with his pads over his feet. He understands angles and how to leverage the ball using his hands well to ward off blockers. Johnson can be disruptive when in blitz mode but needs to expand his pass rush moves and counters to pressure the quarterback. His motor runs on high whenever he buckles his chin strap which should bode well for him contributing as a rookie. Johnson is a good football player that may be limited in man coverage but should be effective in combination zone schemes as well as on special teams.

Analysis

Strengths

Johnson possesses a great combination of size, strength and toughness necessary to play linebacker at the next level. Is a highly competitive player who loves being in a phone booth and can really lay a hit. Is a really experienced talent who’s been productive. Is very instinctive against the run. Versatile player who could end up inside or on the strong side in a 3-4.

Weaknesses

He really lacks great pure speed. Has limited range and isn’t really a sideline-to-sideline tackler. Isn’t overly comfortable in man or zone pass coverage. His ability to be an every down player is questionable because of his coverage shortcomings, but he can rush the passer.
