Player Notes Pros

  • Plays the position like a natural, looks the part, & has the best hands in the class

  • Moves are very smooth and can set up defenders well before and after the catch

  • Has great body control in the air, which helps him win consistently at the catch point

  • Johnson is an explosive mover, with a combination of size and quick, decisive cuts

  • Comfortable when he’s crowded, and will attack the football well along the boundary

  • Basketball background appears when tracking and adjusting to the football downfield

  • Quick feet at the line of scrimmage allows him to win inside & finish in tight spaces

  • Elevation skills are especially notable, able to go and high point the ball in the red zone

  • Great field vision & ability to stay in control pressing up the field doesn't overextend

  • Quick feet and smooth hip drop allow him to gear down and change directions

  • Crafty, polished and shows very good awareness of creating more space for himself

  • Nice burst out of cuts & lateral release off the line of scrimmage with lateral quick outs

  • Crafty route runner who understands leverage and creating false steps from defenders

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Style is a bit unorthodox & seems unrefined, at times, there is some indecisiveness

  • Needs to focus on winning with precision so he can get the ball thrown to him in space

  • Noticeable inconsistencies in his work against press coverage, he can get “too cute”

  • Functional strength isn't where he's going to make his money at the NFL level
