Prospect Profile: Mike Johnson

Mike Johnson School: Kansas State
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 290 40: 5.23 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Three-year starter who spent his first two seasons at guard before moving to center as a senior.

Positives: Explosive blocker strong at the point of attack. Quick off the snap, jolts opponents and fights hard throughout the action. Gets movement from run blocks and effectively uses body positioning to seal defenders from the action. Opens up the middle of the field and plays heads up football. Strong in his upper body and effectively works his hands throughout the action. Good with the shotgun snap.

Negatives: Marginal skills in space, has difficulty adjusting to blitzes thrown by the defense and lacks overall blocking range. Gets tall and plays with minimal leverage.

Analysis: A mauler that's been a consistent and durable force on the college level, Johnson possesses marginal size/speed numbers for the NFL. The versatility to play several spots up front could help him catch on as a backup.
