Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about ANTHONY JOHNSON: Buffalo, 6017 209 4.55. Fifth year senior and two year starter at Buffalo after two different junior college stints. Hails from Rock Hill, SC. Johnson opted to return for his senior season to get his degree. The former all-state high school basketball player shows an aggressive power forward style that doesn’t need a ton of space to be effective. He is often the aggressor in combat with a defensive back which has led to loads of production over his two seasons at Buffalo. The lack of top end athletic ability will make things difficult for him, but there is enough in his game when it comes to ball skills and route-running potential to make him worth a shot at developing into a quality possession receiver. Big and physical receiver who will fight for the ball. Aggressive with a boxer’s mentality. Can use his body in several ways to gain positional advantage. Plucks the ball out of the air. Tracks the downfield pass and shows good balance throughout. Has a suddenness to his game as a route runner. Eats the cushion and creates separation via contact and powerful change of direction. Long speed and acceleration won’t gain the separation to create windows against tight man coverage. Runs high and gives the corner a big target to hit. Lacks the looseness in his lower body. Delayed at the top of his route. Forecasts his intentions too often. 2018 stats: 57-1011, 17.7 ypr, 11 TD. Did not work out at Combine. Fifth/ sixth round. (A-31 3/8, H-9 3/8, VJ-32.5, SS-DNP).
