Overview

Johnson is an all day sucker that, while he doesn’t dominate or punish opponents, simply knows how to get the job done. He has played and started at both guard positions as well as both tackle positions while at Alabama. He understands angles as well as his limitations and does an excellent job of not letting himself get into situations that expose his weaknesses. He lacks top sand in his lower body and can be driven back into the pocket by powerful interior defensive linemen. He is the kind of player that finds a way to become productive blockers at the next level.

Analysis

Strengths

Johnson has size and enough height to add some more weight. Possesses outstanding football intelligence. Displays the position versatility to play either guard spot or tackle. Has long arms. Was a three year starter at a major program and part of one of the nation’s top running games as a senior.

Weaknesses

Lacks great sand in lower body and can be overpowered in pass protection against the bull rush. Does not have great foot agility and range and isn’t always comfortable getting out and blocking in space. Is not a punishing blocker who will dominate at the point of attack.
