Ronald Johnson Scouting Report
Ronald Johnson
Ronald Johnson - USC (HT: 5-11½ - WT: 199)
Combine 40: 4.47 - Position Rank: 18 of 60

Positives: Good speed, can get behind the defense... Solid hands, reliable player who was looked to a lot in big situations... Quick off the line of scrimmage, puts a lot of pressure on cornerbacks... Good after the catch, tough to catch when he's in the open field, a slick runner... Strong character, known as a hard worker and a gym rat... Has experience returning both kickoffs and punts... Will be a good possession receiver out of the slot as a number two or three option in the NFL.

Negatives: Small frame, appears weak and gets overpowered by larger defenders... Lacks good acceleration on cuts, can't separate from quicker cornerbacks... Has small hands... Slows down going into his breaks... Not a great run blocker, doesn't have the strength to push his man backwards... Poor leaping ability, not good at pinpointing the ball in the air... Suffered a broken collarbone in 2009... USC receivers have been very hit or miss in recent years... Tools are there, but still raw and needs to be coached up a bit.
