Pos: 
Explosive ball carrier developing a complete game. Smart, displays initial quickness taking the handoff and has a terrific burst. Squeezes through small openings in the offensive line, keeps his feet moving and breaks arm tackles. Runs low to the ground, plays with a rough style and does not shy away from contact. Drives his shoulders through opponents and works to pick up positive yardage. Displays a burst through the hole and beats defenders into the open field. Quick out of his stance into pass routes and out of route breaks and catches the ball well.
Neg: 
Struggled with injuries last season. Had to compete for playing time due to the talent in the Maryland backfield. Won’t move the pile.
Analysis: 
When he was on the field, Johnson was a productive ball carrier and displayed a variety of skill. He caught the ball exceptionally well during Shrine Game practices and has all the makings of a situational running back and spot starter at the next level.
