Penn State's Theo Johnson is a tight end projection bet based on his uber athletic traits. At the NFL Combine, Johnson tested OFF the charts with 91st percentile or better marks in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump and broad jump.
And he did this at 6-foot-6 and 259 pounds. The guy also has massive hands (98th percentile). It's par for the course with another freaky Penn State NFL product. But at least Johnson showed during his final season that he could convert athletics into on-field football production. He posted an 18% dominator rating during the 2023 season with 7 TDs and 341 receiving yards. Still the lack of overall consistency suggests we might be biding our time for Johnson to make a full-fledged impact at the next level. But there's no doubt a team will be tantalized by Johnson's raw build and traits to invest highly in him. He reminded me of a combination of Mo Alie-Cox and Logan Thomas. The rumor was the Giants were searching for a pass-catching tight end in this year's draft, with Darren Waller likely retiring. Johnson has a chance to command targets in Big Blue's offense, which is a win in my book. Daniel Bellinger is more of a blocking tight end. And after fellow rookie Malik Nabers, HC Brian Daboll is searching for playmakers to get the ball to. The former Nittany Lion is TE38 in early best ball ADP.

Theo Johnson placed on PUP list

The Giants have placed rookie Theo Johnson on the physically unable to perform list.

Fantasy Impact

Johnson is dealing with some kind of an injury that will leave him on the PUP list heading into training camp. It's unclear what the timeline is for his recovery, but he is eligible to be activated at any point. This won't mean much for fantasy purposes if he's back sooner rather than later.
