There isn't much to dislike about Diontae Johnson's game. He can play underneath, in intermediate areas and vertically with great speed. Drops had been an issue before 2018, but he seemed to improve in his final collegiate season. If a team commits to getting Johnson the ball in space and underneath, he can be dangerous as a third receiver and return man.
GRADE: 5.69 (ROUND 5—BACKUP CALIBER)
