Bills' Jaquan Johnson: All over field
Johnson led the Bills in tackles during Thursday's win over the Colts, posting nine total stops, including eight solo and one tackle for a loss.
The Bills selected Johnson in the sixth round in April, so he faces a bit of a challenge to make the final roster. The top three safety spots appear set between starters Jordan Poyer and Michael Hyde and veteran Kurt Coleman, so it'll be between Johnson, Dean Marlowe and Abraham Wallace for one or two spots to round out the position. Thursday's outing certainly helps Johnson's cause.

Bills' Jaquan Johnson: Buffalo bound
The Bills selected Johnson in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 181st overall.
Johnson is undersized and tested poorly at the combine, lowlighted by a 4.69 40-yard dash at 5-foot-10 and 191 pounds. Despite those limitations, Johnson was a hard-nosed safety who was more than willing to help in run support with two seasons of at least 90 tackles. The Miami (FL) product plays better than his testing would suggest and his physical nature should land him a roster spot as a special teamer at the very least.
