Overview:

Johnson finished his career at Southern, where he played in 46 career games, had 190 tackles, 16 interceptions, 55 pass breakups, and 1 forced fumble. He has great speed, he is a tackling machine, and a shut down cornerback. He is a ball hawk, he has good instincts, and is a hard hitter. He is a good cover cornerback, he is very physical, and does not back down. He is a defensive play maker, a difference maker on defense, and a relentless defender. On the other hand, he is a bit undersized, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I see Johnson being a day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
