Carl Johnson Scouting Report
Carl Johnson
Carl Johnson - Florida (HT: 6-5 - WT: 361)
Combine 40: 5.43 - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 20 of 30

Positives: Versatile... Huge... Very long arms... Reasonably good short area quickness for a man his size... Solid anchor, holds up reasonably well to bull rushers... Reasonably good awareness, does a nice job keeping his head on a swivel... Good strength... Good run blocker... Can dominate at POA but is inconsistent and will struggle to generating power through his lower body... Can control defender once locked on... Seals off the running lane reasonably well... Can get to the second level but doesn't break down especially well... Carries his weight better than most 360 lbs. men.

Negatives: Not much of a pass protector... Marginal lateral quickness and agility, stiff, slow to change direction... Lacks good lateral range... Not very explosive, lacks any real suddenness to his game... Struggles to maintain good knee bend, plays too high... Allows defenders into his frame... Overextends, marginal coordination and balance... Sloppy hand placement, struggles to get hands inside... Doesn't get low enough to establish leverage... Slow footed, struggles against speed rushers... More of a catcher than hitter... Leans into his blocks instead of driving through them... Looks awkward on the move... More of an obstacle in space than actual blocker... Would really benefit by losing 20-25 lbs... Has twice been arrested for violating a restraining order.
