“Johnson is an athletic prospect who could potentially play defensive end or outside linebacker at the next level. He displays very good snap anticipation to go along with good first step quickness. Johnson possesses good change of direction and can break down in space to secure a tackle. He has good pass rush ability and flashes the bend to turn the corner and chase down the quarterback.”
