“A disruptive interior defensive lineman with adequate size (6-4, 310), Johnson should continue to improve with more game experience.” –Todd McShay
A productive one-gap interior defensive lineman that can get into the backfield. Plays a lot of snaps, and has a non-stop motor. Has limitations as a run defender, and will need to work on building up strength in his base and upper body to contribute more as a run defender. Perfect fit for an attacking 4-3 scheme.
