NFL Draft Scouting Report: Jovon Johnson

Jovon Johnson\CB\Iowa

Full Name: Jovon Johnson         School: Iowa

Ht: 5-8    Wt: 176    40: 4.59    Yr: 4Sr

Pos: Undersized yet physical cornerback with good ball skills. Quick back pedaling in reverse, immediately locates the ball and displays hands for the pick. Explosive, stays with opponents out from routes and quickly closes. Nicely tracks the deep pass and positions himself to make a play on the ball. Feisty and will mix it up.

Neg: Possesses more of a burst rather then sustained speed. Out-muscled by larger opponents. Gives up a lot of receptions.

Analysis: Consistent on the college field, Johnson is an aggressive and confident cover-man with potential as a dime back in a zone system.
