Draft Scouting Report

Draft Scouting Report:

Rating: 82.92 (Long-term starter)

Pro Comparison: Alexander Mattison


Roschon Johnson is a former four-star QB who moved to RB because of team needs. Low-mileage running back because he's always been Bijan Robinson's No. 2, but that is a plus in the eyes of NFL teams. Johnson excels in just about every facet of the position outside of actually running the ball -- he blocks with purpose, shows the ability to make plays in the pass game and he's also one of the best special teamers in this class.


  • Well built frame with low mileage; had 80, 96 and 93 carries from 2020-22
  • Shows ability to catch the ball and be a weapon in the pass game out of the backfield
  • Takes blocking seriously; served as Bijan Robinson's lead blocker and regularly locked-up second-level targets
  • Patient at line of scrimmage, lets hole develop, plays over his pads, has low center of gravity with good contact balance; second-level defenders bounce off of him if they're not committed to the tackle
  • One of Texas' top special teams players


  • Very few holes in his game
  • Could improve as a route runner/receiver
  • Can he be a feature back at the next level? (Does it matter?)

Combine Results:

  • 40-Yard Dash: 4.58 seconds
  • Vertical: 31.5 inches
  • Broad Jump: 10 feet, 2 inches
