Jeron Johnson Scouting Report
Jeron Johnson
Jeron Johnson - Boise St. (HT: 5-10¼ - WT: 212)
Combine 40: 4.53 - Position Rank: 12 of 35

Positives: Average height and bulk for the position, looks to have a pretty solid frame... Has very good speed for a safety.. Has good upper-body strength, put up 23 reps on the bench press at the combine... Excellent production in four years at Boise State (328 tackles, eight interceptions)... Is a very physical player, loves to hit, has good pop and does a good job making good contact all over the field... Plays good man-to-man coverage, more proficient in man than in zone... Knows his responsibilities and does a good job of directing the defense, appears to be a pretty heady player... Has good hips and solid change-of-direction ability... Is a fluid and athletic player... Has a fairly high ceiling because of his physical tools.

Negatives: Instincts are a little below-average, route recognition and range could be better... Not a great deep-half defender, zone coverage skills are lacking for a safety... Not especially good at getting off blocks, will be much better suited playing off the ball and out of the box in the NFL... Is still a raw safety, will need some time to adjust at the next level... Is a decent wrap-up tackler, but needs to do a better job of breaking down and lowering pad level, leaves feet when tackling far too often.
