Draft Profile: Minnesota WR Tyler Johnson

11 February 2020 DRAFT


Tyler Johnson 2020 NFL Draft Profile

Measureables: 6’2″ 205 LBs

Tyler Johnson is one of the easiest players (not receivers, players) to evaluate in this entire draft class. Productive, reliable, sure handed, great character, and just everything you look for in a prospect. In a loaded WR class, he just doesn’t stand out because he isn’t a giant and he isn’t a speedster, but for lack of a better phrase, he’s just everything. He is a great route runner, has great size, has above NFL average speed, incredible hands, and is a high character guy. Tyler Johnson may just be my can’t miss guy.
