Prospect Profile: Cedric Johnson

Cedric Johnson School: Clemson
Ht: 6-2.5 Wt: 337 40: 5.25 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Three-year starter who consistently graded out as one of Clemson's best offensive lineman. Strongest player on the team last season with a 530 pound bench press to his credit.

Positives: Big, stout wide-bodied blocker coming off a disappointing senior campaign. Blocks with forward lean, strong at the point and controls opponents once engaged in a block. Possesses a lot of natural power with the ability to drive opponents off the line. Keeps his feet moving throughout the action and flashes skill blocking on the move.

Negatives: Does a lot of leaning and must learn to finish blocks. Not quick or explosive off the snap. Looks overweight and poorly conditioned. Marginal ball awareness and not alert on the field.

Analysis: Physically, Johnson possesses the tools to work with, as this massive blocker is surprisingly athletic. Yet the inability to control his weight and the tendency to get sloppy make him practice squad material.
