ANDRE JOHNSON: Miami, 6020 230 4.40. Junior eligible. Two year starter. Improving. Imposing specimen. Tall and sturdy with a muscular upper body and very long arms for a wide receiver. Excellent athlete. Still a bit raw as a route runner but he shows a burst out of his cuts and is a physical over the middle target. Legitimate deep threat with a pullaway gear. Is an aggressive snatcher who attacks the ball but has inconsistent hands. Outstanding leaper — dangerous in jump ball situations. Playmaker after the catch — has a quick stutterstep move to beat the first tackler. Tough competitor. Physical blocker — explosive when taking on linebackers and safeties on running plays. Can overpower and sustain downfield when going against smaller defenders. Not quite as polished or productive as most top receiving prospects, but he has superb tools.
