Diontae Johnson, WR, Toledo #3

5102, 188, 4.49

Notes: From Ruskin, FL. Played wide receiver and quarterback in his prep career. Played in 11 games, with 14 receptions for 237 yards (16.9 avg.) and 3 touchdowns, also returned 32 kickoffs for 22.8 average as a freshman in 2015. Injury redshirt in 2016. Played in 14 games, caught 74-1,278-13 (17.3 avg.), averaged 22.8 on kickoff returns, including 99-yard touchdown, and 4 punt returns for 102 yards (25.5 avg.) with an 87-yard TD in 2017. In 13 games, caught 49-761-8 (15.5 avg.), returned kickoffs 16-412-1 (25.8 avg.) and punts 13-241-1 (18.5 avg.) in 2018.

Positives: Explosive athlete with excellent quickness, burst and speed. Fine hands and pass catching ability. Very fluid and natural. Creates separation. Exceptional cutting ability and change of direction. Very shifty and elusive. Changes speeds nicely. Dynamic return specialist for both kickoffs and punts. Innate vision and instincts as an open field runner.

Negatives: Small with modest overall build and strength. Still refining his pass routes. Gets a little too casual with the football at times (i.e. ball security).

Summary: Undersized big-play receiver and return man who can contribute early due to his versatility.
