Travis Johnson, OLB/DE, San Jose State
Strengths: Better-than-advertised athlete with natural flexibility to bend and play with leverage and low pad level. Active and competitive, always hustling with top effort. Smart and has a strong understanding of the game. Versatile experience with his hand on the ground and standing up at linebacker. Quick first step and uses his hands at the point. Uses his eyes well and shows smooth change of direction to quickly adjust. Strong production as a starter, setting a new conference record for sacks (31). Strong-willed and a hard worker on and off the field.
Weaknesses: Tweener size and strength, struggling to stack and shed. Hesitates at times and needs to play more decisive. Lack of length is exposed too often with only average measureables. Gets hung up on blocks and needs to do a better job avoiding blockers instead of taking them on. Needs to show a better sense of his surroundings to anticipate and not be caught off-balance.
