Draft Rewind 2007 - Charles Johnson - Carolina Panthers

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about CHARLES JOHNSON: Georgia, 6022 270 4.86. Junior entry. One-year starter. Productivity as a pass rusher with the ability to play the run. Good agility and body control. Stays on his feet and keeps his balance. Demonstrates quick feet with his outside rush or inside charge. Lateral quickness to bend the corner and flatten out down the line. Quick on slant and angle moves. Will get stuck on a blocker at times, but generally sheds and gets into pursuit quickly. Reads the play quickly and finds the ball. Flashes a burst after initial contact. If he doesn’t get a sack, he forces a hurry. Uses his hands and speed to rush the passer. Gets off block and tackles without losing ground. Shorter than ideal as an edge pass rusher. Vision obscured by tall linemen. Productive. Strong junior year overshadowed teammate Quentin Moses. Played in a rotation in 2005 and started for the first time in 2006. A one year body of work doesn’t give you much to go on, but demonstrates all the raw skills to be successful on the next level. A good athlete that just needs to play more and become more technique conscious. Second/ third round. (A-34 1/4, H-9 5/8, BP-33, 10-1.70).
