Overview:

Johnson has great size, he usually does not get bull rushed by pass rushers, he uses his hands for leverage against speedy edge rushers, and he is a good run blocker. He also opens holes for his back, he gives his QB time in the pocket, is a good pass blocker, and protector, and a mauler. He has had issues with speedy edge rushers in the past, he is not as athletic as the top tackles Cam Robinson, and Ryan Ramczyk. I expect Johnson to be selected in the 2nd round, 3rd round at worse.
