Johnson will miss a minimum of eight weeks thanks to his hamstring injury.
The Panthers selected Shaq Thompson with the 25th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Despite being arrested for marijuana possession on Monday, reigning SEC sack champion Shane Ray ranks as Missouri's top NFL prospect. What other former Tigers will be drafted this week and what talent does Gary Pinkel and his staff have waiting in the wings?
The wild card of the 2015 NFL Draft is where will Marcus Mariota be drafted. If it's at the No. 2 spot like many expect, the next question becomes to which team?
If the reports are true and the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles will indeed be adding defenders Ndamukong Suh and Byron Maxwell, respectively, the clubs could be free to spent just as lavishly on skill-position stars on draft day.
While teams selecting in the top 10 are in position to nab potential building blocks, perennial playoff contenders like Baltimore, Dallas, Seattle and New England could use the draft to find cheap alternatives to expensive veterans. No club appears to be in better position to fill a key area of need than the Packers.
While the Bucs and Titans hope that Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota prove the answers to their prayers for a franchise quarterback, most of the other clubs in the top 10 focus on the pass rushers and pass-catchers -- though not necessarily in the order you might expect.
The Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions and Denver Broncos have big decisions in free agency with stars DeMarco Murray, Ndamukong Suh and Julius Thomas. The clubs could look to the 2015 draft for cheaper, young talent.
As many as six players, led by Randy Gregory, might be selected in the first round of this year's draft. But how many will make an immediate impact?
Jameis Winston may come up with plenty of off-field concerns but in a division boasting the likes of Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Cam Newton, Tampa Bay doesn't have much choice but to gamble on the best quarterback in the draft.
