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).
Walterfootball.com, 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.
Draftcountdown.com ranks Leonard Johnson 7th.
Another great NFL Draft site, NFLdraftscout.com, ranks LJ 8th.
"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"
