Why He Should be Higher
Pro-style offensive schemes likely won't fit Kevin Johnson's skill set in college, but he has the potential to flourish in a variety of option attacks. What stands out about him is his ability to keep defenders off-balance with his versatility, especially along the defensive front.
More shifty than speedy, he creates issues with his mobility. This strength can be enhanced at the next level when paired with a talented running back or two in the backfield.
Johnson exhibits above-average accuracy on throws of all distances, and that's really the selling point for him as a passer. He won't fire the ball through a crowd of collegiate defenders, but his touch on tosses along the sidelines and down the seam is far more polished than many of his contemporaries in this class.
Some squads might rather welcome Johnson to campus as a receiver, where his athleticism translates favorably in the slot. It's a position he's played in high school, but there will still be plenty of options if he'd prefer to give quarterback a shot in college (and, honestly, he should).
Georgia Tech, UCF, Illinois and Marshall are among his offers. It isn't hard to imagine Johnson lining up behind center for the Yellow Jackets, orchestrating coach Paul Johnson's triple-option offense.
