Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about AUSTIN JOHNSON: Penn State, 6043 314 5.28. Junior entry from Galloway, NJ. Two-year starter. Second team All- Big 10. A quick twitch wide-bodied athlete who hustles to pressure the quarterback. Takes good angles in pursuit. Gets upfield push, is instinctive and physical. An inside run stuffer is what he is best at, projecting his game to the next level. Energizer bunny who tracks play from sideline to sideline despite his size. Has a thick wide body that moves quick up and down the line of scrimmage. Has functional strength and power to push the pocket even when double-teamed. He uses all his limbs as weapons to make a tackle. Drives his legs through the ball carrier on contact. Needs to consistently play in a bent knee position to maintain leverage. Sometimes he comes up not out as a run defender. Senior Bowl notes: Flashed first step quickness and a good punch at the point of attack. Productive and assignment sound in team periods. Plays with a good pad level with the ability to separate quickly. He did have trouble with double teams at times. 2015 stats: 78 T, 15 TFL, 6.5 sacks, 2 PBU, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 2.12, right 2.17. OSR:27/28. Third/fourth round. (A-32 3/4, H-9 7/8, BP-25, 10-1.85).
