Pos: 
Aggressive defensive back with nice size. Physical, flies upfield and gives great effort against the run. Instinctive and quick to read and diagnose. Tracks the pass in the air and displays excellent hands for the interception. Sized well, plays big football and possesses the ability to burst to the action out of his plant. Uses his frame extremely well to outmuscle receivers. Squares into ball carriers and wraps up at the point of attack.
Neg: 
Does not show deep speed on film despite his 40 time. Plays back on his heels at times. Must be more consistent in his backpedal. A bit slow out of his transition. Really struggles to make plays with his back to the ball.
Analysis: 
Johnson is athletic, aggressive and displays a lot of ability facing the action. He performed brilliantly at the combine but must translate those numbers onto the field. Johnson is best in a zone system or backed off the line of scrimmage, and if he can't play cornerback on Sundays, a move to safety is a possibility.
