Pos: 
Athletic wide receiver with terrific computer numbers. Plays physical football, sacrifices his body to come away with the difficult reception and takes a pounding but holds onto the throw. Quickly releases off the line of scrimmage, comes back to the ball to make himself an available target and extends to pluck the ball from the air. Nicely adjusts to the errant throw and gets down to scoop up low passes. Gets vertical, contorts and exposes himself to make the reception.
Neg: 
Really doesn't show naturally soft hands and drops catchable throws. Displays limited quickness and struggles to separate from opponents despite his 40 time. Often cradles the ball against his frame and doesn’t catch it cleanly.
Analysis: 
Johnson is a physical specimen who has shown flashes of ability the past two seasons but never truly elevated his game. He comes with big upside but will need time before he's NFL-ready. Johnson deserves to be on a practice squad this season, and if coached properly, he could surprise at the next level.
