Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JOHN JOHNSON: Boston College, 6004 208 4.61. Two-year starter from West Hyattsville, MD. A versatile safety with experience at corner. Plays the deep safety spot along with moving down to cover a slot receiver versus spread sets. Decent hips, quick feet. Plays the deep hole with good anticipation of route concepts. Could fill a sub package role. Finds the ball well. Good backpedal. Takes good angles versus receivers in the pass game. Plays the ball at the high point. Active and fluid. Very good coverage skills. A small frame hurts against bigger body tight ends. Has a burst to close. Good ball skills with good leaping ability to the catch point. Good match-up skills on the slot. Mirrors cuts well and has good recovery speed if out of position. More of a cover safety than a close to the line run support presence. Senior Bowl notes: Demonstrated the ability to come downhill quickly in the run game. Good ball skills and is aware of where the ball is in flight. Can make the play at the catch point. Covers a lot of ground quickly. Good overlap deep range. Struggles at times in route recognition. Late to react at times. Question instincts. 2016 stats: 77 T, 2.5 TFL, 1 sack, 1 FF, 12 PBU, 3 INT.
