2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TARON JOHNSON: Weber State, 5111 192 4.48. Three-year starter from Sacramento, CA. Had significant playing time as a freshman. First-team FCS All-America and Big Sky Defensive MVP. Has experience in a variety of coverages and technique. Has good overall cover skill and has played well against higher competition. Fluid footwork with a smooth pedal and quick transitions. In press man can lock up a receiver with quick reactions, the ability to mirror cuts, and react to double moves. Rarely gives up inside leverage. Sticks like glue and can run with verticals. In off-man he can cut off routes and break on cuts. Sudden in his break and drive. Has zone awareness with the ability to see multiple routes. Closes on routes from inside zones and gets to a lot of balls. Very productive with the ball in the air. Willing tackler and can get a ball carrier down. Not extremely physical. Struggles to get off a stalk block. Lack of bulk and power hurts him in run support. He tends to play with his weight forward in his pedal and will waste a step in lateral transition at times. Has had some trouble with elite speed receivers. Has the cover skills to compete and has a chance to be a sub package/backup/special teams player. Career leader at Weber State with 42 PBU. Senior Bowl notes: Had fluid initial reactions with a smooth pedal and transition out of his break. Early in the week he was lunging at cuts and false stepping. Double moves also gave him fits as he would bite, then struggle to recover. Played better in press showing smooth turns and run ability to stay in phase. 2017 stats: 49 T, 3 TFL, 2 sacks, 12 PBU, 2 QBH, 1 FF, 3 INT. BTR:left 5.05, right 5.09. OSR:26/41. Sixth/seventh round.
