Austin Johnson

School: Penn State
Position: DT
Positive: Two-year starter who posted a career-best 78 tackles, 15 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks last season. Large, athletic defensive tackle with a nice degree of upside. Bends his knees, plays with leverage and works his hands throughout the action. Displays power in his lower body, explosive and bull rushes opponents off the line. Focused on and doubled by opponents in the middle of the field yet rarely off his feet. Quickly gets his hands up, strong in his upper body and knocks blockers away with violent hand punch. Displays a good change of direction, fluid if asked to twist or stunt and has an explosive nature. Plays tough, heads-up football and works to make plays.
Negative: At times easily knocked from his angle of attack by a single opponent. Struggles getting off blocks when he shouldn't. Did not distinguish himself during Senior Bowl practices.
Analysis: Johnson showed flashes of dominance the past two seasons and has the ability to take over games. He offers potential at defensive tackle and even and in certain two gap systems but needs to step up the consistency of his game.
