2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah

Positives
Nice-sized cornerback with solid ball skills and tremendous upside. Quick in his backpedal, smoothly flips his hips and loses nothing in transition with opponents. Physical, willingly lays his pads into opponents and mixes it up with receivers throughout the route.

Runs well laterally, flies around the action and displays solid ball skills. Beats down opponents to defend the throw and gives effort against the run. Gets vertical to pick off the throw and displays good hands for the interception. Very effective facing the action and quickly closes to the play with a burst of speed. Stays with assignments.

Negatives
Has lapses and occasionally lets receivers run behind him. Late to react to receivers off the line of scrimmage. Must improve his play with his back to the ball.

Analysis
Johnson is a talented athlete with next-level size who flashes ball skills. He must improve the nuances of his position, but he comes with tremendous upside and could develop into a starter at the next level if properly coached.
