Overview:

Johnson had a great career at Boston College, where he played in 44 games, had 167 tackles, 5.5 for loss, 6 interceptions, and 14 pass breakups. He has good size, he has good speed, he is a sure fire tackler, a hard hitting safety, and is very experienced. He is solid in coverage, he is a defensive play maker, and is very versatile, as he can play safety, and even in the slot, as a cornerback. He tends to get beat in coverage at times, and he missed the final five games in his Sophomore season due to an arm injury. With that said, I see Johnson as a day 3 pick for sure, in the mid round range.
