Pro-Day Report - Arizona

Thirty teams were on hand for pro day at Arizona, a school that did not send a single player to the combine. And for the most part they were on hand to watch one of the most unheralded defensive line prospects in the 2019 draft.

I’ve mentioned PJ Johnson several times in the past, as the defensive tackle prospect is drawing comparisons to Damon Harrison. After commanding the attention of scouts during the 2018 campaign, Johnson did not disappoint during his pro-day workout.

Measuring 6037 and 323 pounds (22 fewer than his weight last season), Johnson timed as fast as 5.09 seconds in the 40. By comparison, Renell Wren of rival Arizona State timed 5.01 seconds at 318 pounds at the combine.

Johnson then looked terrific in position drills and easily moved his large frame around the field. He also completed 20 reps on the bench.

The big defensive tackle has five official visits presently set up, and over the past two days Johnson met with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Tampa Bay Bucs and Tennessee Titans.
