Johnson had a very productive career at Clemson, where he played in 54 games, notched 101 tackles, 5.5 for loss, 9 interceptions, and 10 pass breakups, proving to be a ball hawk, and shut down defensive back. He has good size, good speed, is a sure fire tackler, a good cover safety, and is very experienced. He is also a hard hitting defensive back, and he is also versatile, as he can lineup in the slot as a cornerback, in addition to being a safety. He does have issues with fast backs, and receivers at times, and he dealt with a calf strain while at Clemson. With that said, I view Johnson as a day 3 pick, somewhere in the mid rounds.
