Position: Wide Receiver College: Miami (Fla.) Height: 6-2 Weight: 230 40-yard dash: 4.3 Hometown: Miami, Fla. Johnson is a big, physical, fast receiver who has all the skills to be a number one receiver in the NFL. Johnson has great height at 6-3 and impressive speed, reportedly 4.4 in the 40. He is an excellent athlete. He is a good jump ball receiver and rarely loses such battles. He does a good job of catching the ball with his hands and not with his body. He gets good separation off the line of scrimmage as he is big enough to beat corners who try and jam him. Johnson is quick out of his stance and coming out of his breaks. On the down side, he tends to lose focus and drop catchable passes. This also affects his route running, as he tends to round off his patterns. Johnson is deadly after catching a pass, as he has the speed to out run most defenders. He isn't elusive but reads his down field blockers well, and thus is good on reverses as well. He is a physical receiver and is not afraid to go over the middle. He is a willing blocker down field. So far Johnson has gotten by on his physical talents and not put in the extra work both on and off the field that he needs to become a dominating wide receiver. If he gets his work ethic up to the same level as his physical skills, he will be a special wide receiver.
