Scouting report: Herman Johnson

Herman Johnson

6’7, 362 pounds | Offensive guard | Louisiana State

Strengths: Even though Johnson is one of the largest football players in the county, he’s surprisingly athletic. Moves well laterally to pull and trap. Road grating drive blocker. Can handle the strongest of defensive tackles on his own. Incredibly powerful throughout his frame. Dangerous hand punch. Alert as a pass blocker and keeps his head moving to pick up defenders. Long arms and big hands allow him to control opponents.

Weaknesses: Inconsistent play, especially his technique. Not a very good cut blocker. Weight will always be an issue after he came to LSU at more than 400 pounds. Came in very overweight at the Senior Bowl. Doesn’t have the best balance and needs to improve his base. Has to do a better job sustaining his blocks. Takes some time to get to the second level.

Final word: For such a big player, Johnson carries his weight fairly well. Still, based on his fluctuating weight, it makes you question his work ethic. Probably the most disappointing player during Senior Bowl practices. Johnson excels especially in the power run game, which perfectly suits his assets. Two-time all-conference selection. An All American as a senior.

Round projection: 4
