2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Collin Johnson, WR, Texas Longhorns

Career Snapshot
Three-year starter who caught 38 passes for 559 yards and three touchdowns as a senior in 2019. Set career highs with 68 receptions, 985 receiving yards and seven touchdown catches as a junior.

Positives
Tall receiver who presents himself as an outstanding third-down and red-zone target. Tracks the pass in the air and uses his hands to separate from defenders. Gets vertical and contorts to come away with the difficult reception.

Stays low out of breaks, positions himself to make the reception and uses his frame to shield away defenders. Comes back to the ball, offers the quarterback an imposing target and generally extends his hands and snatches the ball away from his frame. Keeps the play in bounds and works after the catch.

Negatives
Displays little in the way of quickness or speed. Tends to round off routes and isn’t sharp into breaks. Average run-after-catch skill.

Analysis
Johnson is a tall, imposing pass catcher who wins out for the high or contested throw. He has limitations in his ability to separate from defenders, but Johnson would be a great complementary wideout in third-down and red-zone situations.
