 Draft Scout A.J. Johnson News
08/25/14 - Tennessee's top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 1. ILB A.J. Johnson, Senior...With greater upper body strength in 2014, Johnson could boost his stock. He has just enough speed to meet backs at the edge and is fluid enough to handle coverage responsibilities. Perhaps Johnson's greatest skill is his heavy-hitting as a tackler. He has a nice closing burst to gather momentum and consistently delivers the emphatic pop that has no doubt helped him build his all-conference reputation. Johnson's talent has been clear since his freshman season and his production speaks for itself. He isn't the clean NFL projection that his reputation might lead you to believe, however, and also comes with some off-field baggage. He was arrested February 8, 2014 for purchasing alcohol for a minor and resisting arrest. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
08/25/14 - Tennessee's top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 1. ILB A.J. Johnson, Senior...With an SEC-leading 324 career tackles, Johnson has served as one of the few bright spots for the Volunteers over the past three years. He earned the First Team All-SEC nod from conference coaches last season - his second consecutive topping 100 tackles and considered leaving Rocky Top early for the NFL before he was reportedly given a mid-round grade from the NFL Advisory Committee. Unlike most inside linebackers who possess a compact, muscled-up frame, Johnson is a bit lanky. Like his athletic build suggests, Johnson is quick and he can slither past would-be blockers to make tackles in the hole. He is reliant on beating blockers to the action, however, because he struggles to disengage once they latch on, showing only average power and technique for the position. Worse, Johnson often drops his head on contact, losing sight of the ball. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
08/09/14 - 2014 PRESEASON ALL-SEC FIRST TEAM (MEDIA): LB A.J. Johnson, Tennessee (186)...Johnson returned to Tennessee for his senior season after another stellar campaign as a junior. A 2013 AP and Coaches All-SEC first-team selection, Johnson became the first Vol to record 100 tackles in back to back seasons since Earnest Fields did so in 1990-91 finishing his 2013 campaign with 106. Johnson also notched 8.5 tackles for a loss of 17 yards, tying a career high, while also recovering a fumble and breaking up three passes. Johnson notched five double-digit tackling efforts in 2013, bringing his career total to 18. He currently sits in third place on the UT career assisted tackles list with 164. The Gainesville, Ga., native enters his final season on Rocky Top with 324 career tackles in 36 career games. - Tennessee football
