Comparison

John Johnson Los Angeles Rams

Versatile prospect who can play a number of positions. Defensively, can play up in the box and shoot into the backfield to bring the ball-carrier down. Big hitter but also a sure tackle. Solid in coverage, fluid in drops and moves well laterally. Impressive ball skills, instinctual and gets to the ball quickly. Offensively, when running the ball, runs with patience, waits for his hole then hits it and gets up field. Runs with power and gets yards after contact. Good speed in open field. Projects as multi-year Power 5 starter and third-day NFL draft selection.
