Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Johnstone offers a rare blend of length, agility and initial quickness which makes him a formidable blind-side pass protector. He springs out of his stance and latches on to corral speed rushers and is surprisingly effective against bull rushers due to good core strength, balance and technique to maintain leverage.

Johnstone's athleticism makes him very effective blocking on the move in Oregon's zone attack, frequently beating opponents at the line of scrimmage or the second level with quickness to turn and seal them from the play. Unlike many athletic blockers, Johnstone seems to revel in the opportunity to drive block opponents, as well, offering a physical jolt to greet defenders and a tenacious play-to-the-whistle style that is sure to endear him to NFL offensive line coaches.

WEAKNESSES: There is no question that Johnstone is aided by all of the athletes surrounding him in Oregon's scheme and that to continue his success at the next level he'll need to get bigger and stronger, but like former teammate Kyle Long, Johnstone's upside is such that a first round selection is attainable.

--Rob Rang (7/17/14)

Player Overview

Johnstone's frame and athleticism is befitting more of a tight end rather than a traditional offensive tackle but don't think for a moment that it keeps him from being successful. Johnstone, in fact, may be the most underrated element of Oregon's success the past two seasons, as he has emerged as one of the country's most reliable blockers on the perimeter.

08/11/2014 - Oregon LT Johnstone has torn ACL...Oregon left tackle Tyler Johnstone will miss all of this season with a torn ACL in his right knee, according to CSNNW.com. Johnstone is scheduled to have surgery on Friday. Johnstone also tore the ACL in the same knee during last season's Alamo Bowl victory over Texas. He was cleared by doctors to return after rehabbing the injury but felt the knee pop during the team's first week of practice. Johnstone is a three-year starter on the Ducks' offensive line. Redshirt junior Andre Yruretagoyena will likely replace him. Yruretagoyena has played 11 games at both guard and tackle. - The Sports Xchange
