Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DIONTAE JOHNSON: Toledo, 5104 183 4.54. Junior entry and two year starter from Ruskin, FL. Small but slippery with the ball in his hands. Has the looseness from his hips combined with light feet and tremendous balance to make him a hard-to-touch playmaker. Sudden and twitchy. Has multiple pairs of eyes all over his head, always has the feel for where defenders are. Cutback runner with plus-acceleration. Shows potential as a route runner. Can burst out of his breaks without giving away intentions. Quick and easy separation. Has made plays outside, from the slot, and in the return game. Size and playing strength make things tough for him in traffic. Gets beat up at the line. Doesn’t show the mentality or toughness that a slot needs to have. Hands are inconsistent, will drop the easy balls. Long speed is limited, won’t take the top off. Route running gets sloppy, looks like a free lancer at times. 2018 stats: 49-761, 15.5 ypr, 8 TD, 13-241 PR, 18.5 avg, 1 TD, 16-412 KOR, 25.8 avg, 1 TD. OSR:34/42. Seventh round/PFA. (A-30 3/4, H-9, VJ-33.5, SS-4.46).
