Player Overview

The Miami native stayed in South Florida to play for the Owls, and saw his first action in 2010 following his redshirt season, but saw his campaign come to an early end with three broken back bones suffered while making a special teams tackle.

He returned in 2011 to start every game and finished second on the team with 92 tackles. Johnson took a bit of a step back as a junior, seeing action in 10 games before rebounding with a big senior season that included seeing action at linebacker, along the defensive line and on special teams.

Johnson did not earn an invitation to the Scouting Combine, but he did have an impressive pro day workout April 4 that included a 4.60-second 40-yard dash, 23 reps on the 225-pound bench press and a 10'00 broad jump.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Viewed as a team leader who played linebacker, defensive line and special teams as a senior. Displayed excellent athleticism at his pro day. Shows explosion off the ball, and was a pro day workout warrior.

WEAKNESSES: One-trick pony as a pass rusher. Needs to improve upper-body strength in order to handle one-on-one blocks. Lacks great instincts. Back injury from 2010 worth further evaluation, and has been nicked up routinely.

05/12/2014 - A closer look at the Bills picks: Round 7/221 -- Randell Johnson, OLB, 6-3, 242, Florida Atlantic...Johnson recorded 41 tackles and 2.5 sacks as a senior when he played in every game and was named his team's Iron Man of Year. Part of that came from the fact that he played on almost all of the special teams units, as well as on defense. That's where he'll have to make his mark in the NFL. He showed strong footwork at his pro day. One of his greatest gifts is his wingspan as his 34-inch arms are lengthy for a man who stands 6-foot-3, and they enable him to get his hands on some balls in pass coverage. - The Sports Xchange
