Notes:

Was one of the top prospects in Louisiana as a prep. Signed with Mississippi and redshirted in 2007. Appeared in five contests on the offensive line in ’08. Saw action in five games in ’09, starting four at right guard before being suspended for the remainder of the season. In ’10, started the season opener against Jacksonville State at right guard before being dismissed from the team for a violation of team rules, reportedly for his involvement in credit card fraud. Transferred to California (Pa.) for the ’11 season and made 12 starts at right guard.

Positives:

Has long arms and meat hooks for hands. Pops out of his stance. Light on his feet. Fluid movement skills for a big man, including terrific knee and ankle flexion. Expansive blocking range. Outstanding pulling ability — leads through the hole with speed, agility and body control. Gets on top of linebackers with ease and can even pick off third-level defenders. Has a solid base and shows the ability to sit in his stance. Plays through the whistle and flashes some nasty. 

Negatives:

Lacks ideal girth and has a short torso. Average hand strength. Plays too tall. Needs to improve pass-blocking technique in order to mirror and sustain better. Hands and feet do not always work in unison. Needs to learn how to roll his hips and generate more power. Does not physically dominate inferior competition. Struggled when asked to step up in class at the Senior Bowl, and made three errant snaps when temporarily tried at center. Is very immature and character needs to be investigated. Combine workout was noticeably concerning — slipped, could not follow direction, needed directions repeated multiple times and continually drew attention to himself by hooting and hollering, a negative quality for a non-glamour position.

Summary:

A former SEC recruit, Johnson is a raw, inconsistent, physically talented blocker with starter-caliber athletic ability and a marginal makeup that could wear thin on the mushroom club. Measurements are much more appealing than he plays.
