Overview:

Johnson has good size, he is a solid pass rusher, and a good tackler. He was a tackling machine for Ole Miss, and put up good sack numbers. He also gets good pressure on the quarterback. On the other hand, he does not have the fastest speed, and he tends to make some silly mistakes with unnecessary late hits. With that said, I expect Johnson to be a day 3 pick.
