Dennis’ Scouting Notes


  • Has a nasty jump cut
  • Dynamic pass catcher out of the backfield and out wide
  • Always falls forward
  • Doesn’t leave too many yards on the field


  • Straight line runner with one speed, although its adequate
  • Not as powerful as his size suggests
  • He will shy away from defenders

Dennis Digs Deeper

There seems to be no middle ground with Johnson. He is either in your top 10 or outside your top 20 at the position. Johnson really gained some steam after an impressive week at the Senior Bowl.

Kyle’s Instant Evaluation

David Johnson is a prospect loaded with athletic ability, however the production didnt seem to match the ability. He has dynamic pass catching ability. He feels like a prospect that teams will fall in love with because of what he can do in shorts, but when it comes time to put the pads on the production will not happen.
