Team Fit

Strengths 

Johnson's biggest strength is his athleticism. He is an incredibly gifted athlete and shows excellent body control as an NFL lineman. His run blokcing ability is already NFL ready ad he should have no problem stepping in as a top run blokcing lineman in the league. Anchors well, stays square, and can move well off the line of scrimmage. Incredibly smart and his awareness of his surroundings and schemes is unmatched.

Weaknessess

Zion's biggest weakness is that he is really only great as an IOL. He doesn't have outstanding footwork on the edge. His hand placement is not always perfect but he is very consistent so it's only a slight knock on him. I've never seen him show impressive mauling ablity because he is so smooth and technical in his blocking.

Big Picture

As stated, Zion is a gifted athlete and he is an NFL ready lineman. He really does not have many holes in his game and while he may not have the highest ceiling in the draft, his floor is NFL caliber as a starter right away. He is able to dismantle defenders in front of him and lead an offensive scheme. This guy is the type of player who is a captain some day. He is an excellent run blocker and will fit perfectly in a run heavy scheme like the Ravens run game. Zion is first round talent and I expectd him to be grabbed in the first round. I would be very shocked if he isn't a first round pick.

Johnson is a strong and athletci run blocker. His size and strength make him an excellent anchor in the middle of the OL. Because of the heavy run scheme at BC, he has incredible experience in the run game and it shows. He is better as an inside guard but has had success when pulling.

Pass Blocking:

Johnson shows a lot of promise as a pass protector but still needs to improve because he does not have enouh experience here. He is quick in his pass sets and has excellent hand movement.
