The skinny: A fast and talented player in the secondary, Johnson often times lines up as a linebacker because of his ability to match up physically near the line of scrimmage. However, as a safety he covers a lot of ground and has the ability to take away the tight end from opposing offenses. He's got a good combination of size and speed and brings a lot of athletic ability to the table. He has an NFL body already and is coming off a productive junior season. He will enter the season as one of the top defensive prospects in Broward County.
