From Dane Brugler:
A two-year starter at Tulsa, Johnson was a slot receiver in head coach Philip Montgomery’s offense. After starting his college career at Iowa State, he transferred to Tulsa and had a career year as a senior, leading the team in receiving and finishing third in the AAC in receiving yards. With his play speed, Johnson is able to close cushion and mix his gears, creating natural separation from coverage. However, he registered more drops than touchdown catches each season at Tulsa and needs to be more reliable at the catch point to stick. Overall, Johnson doesn’t have the physical traits or ball skills that will strike fear in the heart of defenses, but he is a promising route runner and can get open for his quarterback. He is a potential back-end-of-the-roster possession target.
