Scouting Report on Ronald Johnsonby Mike Farrell - 06/19/2006
Johnson has good size for a cornerback and is excellent in the open field in run support. But itâ€™s his playmaking that makes him a special prospect. Johnson makes big plays, whether itâ€™s a pick, a key pass defense or stripping the ball from a running back, the ball seems to follow him around. Despite an injury that forced him to miss his junior year, he hasnâ€™t lost any speed or explosiveness. Johnson has loose hips and excellent football instincts as he reads routes well and recognizes run quickly.
