Scout.com Player Evaluation:
STRENGTHS
 Aggressiveness
 Change of Direction
 Hitting Ability
AREAS FOR IMPROVEMENT
 Foot Quickness
A very physical player who runs through his tackles, Johnson is also agile enough to change direction while in pursuit. He has soft hands and light feet, but is a heavy hitter who causes turnovers on contact. He is a little high on his run-throughs and this causes him to get chipped quite a bit, but he is strong enough to re-track in pursuit. Johnson has very strong hands and doesn't lose ball carriers after contact--Burke Hayes
