NFL Draft: Leonard Johnson’s Pre-Bowl Stock


It is never too early to talk about the NFL Draft.  From now until the NFL Draft in April, I will give several updates on both Kelechi Osemele and Leonard Johnson’s draft status.  Currently, I think Leonard Johnson is underrated and I believe his stock will raise over the next couple of months (bowl game, Senior Bowl, combine)., one of the best NFL Draft sites, has Leonard Johnson ranked as the 17th-best cornerback prospect this year.  The list was last updated December 2nd. ranks Leonard Johnson 7th.

Another great NFL Draft site,, ranks LJ 8th.

Our friends over at have a  great scouting report on Johnson.  You can check it out here.  Below is an excerpt from the report.

"Does a good job of jamming the wide receiver at the line to re-route him,…Really solid technique, especially coming from a smaller school…good body control and makes a lot of plays on the football, though his hands could be better…fluid hips..and a plus open field tackler…really uses the sideline to his advantage well to force smaller windows for the QB…willing tackler in the open field….competitive…durable hasn’t missed any games due to injuries , even though he was carted off the field one game he returned the next game…thick built..has some kick return ability"
