Bio: 
Three-year starter who was part of a six-man rotation as a sophomore before taking over a full-time role in 2016. Started at right tackle his entire junior season before moving to the left side as a senior, where he started through Week 7 before suffering an ankle injury that limited him for a month.
Pos: 
Strong, wide-bodied college tackle who projects to guard at the next level. Very effective with his hands, consistently sets with a wide base and works to bend his knees. Fires off the snap into blocks, displays strength on running plays and turns defenders from the action to open up running lanes. Patient in pass protection, makes good use of angles and keeps his feet moving. Keeps his head on a swivel and shows excellent awareness.
Neg: 
Best in a small area and lacks footwork in space. A little haphazard in his movement at times and can be all over the place.
Analysis: 
Johnson gets the most from his abilities, and while he lacks great upside, he offers the size, toughness and strength to back up at guard.
