Overview

Johnson's could provide depth as reserve safety at the next level. Does not have the size / speed measurables or great natural instincts to become a starter. He can run with receivers in man coverage but is a liability in zone. Will vacate deep zone for underneath routes and give up big plays. Does not anticipate routes or make many plays on the ball. Will help out in run support but is slow to get downhill and does not possess the ability to consistently shed blocks near the line. Johnson's a potential late-round pick or free agent pickup.


Strengths

Johnson holds up well in man coverage for a safety. Can run with slots and has the athleticism to mirror and shadow routes. Acts as a coach on the field and will line up his teammates. Willing to help out in run support. Possesses good intangibles.

Weaknesses

Has below average size and only adequate speed. Does not exhibit good awareness in zone coverage and can give up the big play over the top. Does not diagnose run quickly enough. Has difficulty getting off blocks and isn't comfortable in the box. Ball skills are not adequate.

Grade

3.8
