2019 NFL Draft Prospect Report: KeeSean Johnson
Name: KeeSean Johnson
School: Fresno State
Listed Height: 6’1
Listed Weight: 201
Strengths: Johnson is a well rounded perimeter WR with quality height and weight measurements. He is a sure handed pass catcher with natural ball adjustment skills and body control. Is exceedingly easy at locating the ball and finishing over his back shoulder. Wins 50/50 jump ball situations and fades with hand strength and quality catching technique and placement on the ball. He can finish the process with a defender on his back and makes outside his frame catches with arm extension. Adept at keying in on the throw and boxing out defenders to clean up the catch point. He has some leaping ability and tracks back to the ball when under thrown. As a route runner, he minimizes wasted steps at the top of his route and can utilize fakes in his stem to pull DBs up and force them to bite on a dead leg. He has solid short area burst and is a willing blocker.
Weaknesses: He is not a downfield burner and can get boxed up by coverage when running linearly. He has room to add weight to his frame and some more functional weight. Johnson will need to sink more into his breaks to make the process smoother.
Overview and Insights: Johnson is a smaller school prospect with high level hands, body control, focus, and route running upside. After some development, he will project to the league as a quality number 2 receiver who can move the chains or make plays in the red zone.
