Johnson is an intriguing slot receiver in the NFL that has a tremendous ceiling. He was used primarily out of the slot at SDSU and this is where he'll live in the NFL. He has some room to grow as far as refinement in his routes, but it's been a while since we've seen him in action (SDSU didn't play in 2020). Will be able to pick apart linebackers on choice routes all game long in zone coverage.Tremendous burst and acceleration. Pops off the line of scrimmage and is able to shift his momentum laterally extremely well. Solid hands and is able to make some grabs outside of his catch radius that surprise you for a player of his size. Able to hold on through contact well and make difficult grabs with defenders bearing in on him. Solid RAC ability and is able to use his acceleration and burst to break angles in the open field. Won't consistently pull away from defenders, but has enough to be a threat. Solid release in the times where he did face press from the slot. Able to rock back, take the contact and get the defender lurching, and then explode through. Able to track the ball well while it's in the air, but was the victim of poor QB play. Was consistently getting open downfield, but wasn't even given the opportunity to make a play on the ball. Great top-end speed and can be a true three-level threat from the slot for a NFL team. Overall, Johnson has questions regarding his lack of 2020 tape. But the talent is there for him to be an impact player from the slot in the NFL.
