  • Might lack some instincts
  • Talent hasn’t always shown through on field
  • Doesn’t have great timed speed

    Summary: Johnson is a linebacker with a very high upside, but hasn’t caught the full attention of NFL scouts quite yet. If he can stay healthy next season, I think he is going to move up draft boards because of his impressive skill set and high upside.

    Player Comparison: Jon Beason. Their body frames, physical approach to the game and range are very similar.
