Zion Johnson Draft Profile

Strengths

Zion Johnson has the perfect frame to be an NFL guard, playing at 6-3, 312 pounds. Coincidentally, it looks a bit like Zion Williamson the last time I saw him. Johnson is a plug-and-play guard for a team that drafts him, possibly being the readiest offensive guard in the draft. He has no wasted movements, great fundamentals and he will move anyone he latches onto.

While Johnson is clearly a guard in the NFL and he played at left guard last season, he was the left tackle for Boston College the year prior, so he has some versatility if need be.

Weaknesses

Johnson could work on pass protection a bit. There were times when stunts confused him or caused a miscommunication on the Boston College offensive line. He’s also not hyper-athletic or super quick, but that isn’t a necessity at guard in the NFL.
