Strong Points

Has played and started at three different secondary positions (corner and both safety positions). Tall with good bulk and strength. Plays faster than timed. Can play both man and zone and has very good ball skills. Very good on special teams.

Weak Points

His timed speed at Indy will hurt him come Draft Day. Because he has been moved around a lot, he hasn't been able to lock in at one position. Doesn't have the speed to play corner at the next level.

The Way We See It

A versatile and underrated prospect. Has started at three different positons and done well at each. He is also a very good special teams player. Johnson has the size and instincts to excel at free safety in the NFL. If he timed fast, he would also be considered at corner by some teams. His versatility will get him on the field early and he will be an eventual starter in the league. Will get drafted later than he deserves because of his time but this kid is a player.
