Pros:

Good size…long arms…explosive off the snap…Gets his hands up if he doesn’t get to the quarterback…does a good job of using his arms to drive the offensive linemen….Good hustle…uses his hands pretty well…Really good functional strength…

Cons:

susceptible to reverses and misdirections crashes too far inside sometimes…lacks ideal awareness…struggles to maintain consistent leverage…Doesn’t offer a lot in terms of pass rush moves…struggles against double teams and has a bit of an inconsistent motor

Thoughts

Cam Johnson has protpyical size for a 43 defensive end and is one of the few bright spots in a lackluster 43 DE class. Cam Johnson has a lot to work with, he has a really good motor and is quick off the snap, and he’s really strong. he has long arms and has active hands. His biggest problems are that he lacks great awareness, he doesn’t maintain his lanes extremely well and can be fooled by reverses, counters, misdirections. And secondly he doesn’t have a full repertoire of pass rush moves. It’s pretty much a bull rush with a little swim move. Still there is a lot to work with and his good size, hustle, and quick burst off the snap are all desirable traits at the N.F.L. level. If he can be coached up to play with better leverage and be taught how to prepare in the film room he could be a real nice player in the N.F.L.
