Strong Points: Height and length (33 5/8" arms). Supposedly times fast in the 40 (doesn't play fast). Good hands. Uses length to notch PBUs.
Weak Points: Long strider who takes a while to get to speed -- lacks a sudden burst. Takes extra steps when in transition. Lacks strength and physicality. Allows receiver to close cushion before turning, putting him out of position. Minimal run-support contributions.
The Way We See It: Johnson played wide receiver for two years at Houston before switching to corner in 2017, when he made five starts before becoming a full-time starter last season. He's very tall and long for a corner but not quick or sudden. Despite size, he is not a very physical player, only tackling when he has to. In coverage he plays mostly man off and too often lets his receiver close the cushion. He flashes catch-up speed but gives up too many underneath plays as he takes extra steps to close. Johnson's height and length give him upside, but right now he's raw and average.
