Overview:

Johnson finished his career at Weber State, where he played in 47 career games, had 172 tackles, 8.0 for loss, 6 interceptions, 48 pass breakups, 2 forced fumbles, and 1 fumble recovered. He has good speed, he is a ball hawk, a tackling machine, and a shut down cornerback. He has good instincts, is a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. He is also a solid cover cornerback, and a relentless defender. He is also very physical, and does not back down. On the other hand, he is not the tallest cornerback. With that said, I see Johnson being a day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
