Notes:
Led Rutgers in tackles for loss with 13.5 as a senior in 2009, accounting for 6.5 sacks as well over the course of his 13 games played...Johnson finished with 39 tackles and 10 TFLs as the starting defensive end in 2008 after being named a preseason Third-Team All-Big East Conference choice...Was slowed in his first few years with the Scarlet Knights because of injuries, preventing him from reaching his full potential and/or putting together strong seasonal efforts given the level of expectations coming out of high school...Johnson does not always fight off blocks well and could use more of a boost at the initial point of impact.
