RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Johnson spent most of his rookie season on the bench, but he stepped up and started for the 49ers during their final four games, accruing 34 total tackles and a pick over that span. With a big 6-2, 200 pound frame, Johnson has the size to be a starting cornerback in the NFL. With the team losing both of the corners who started the majority of games last season, there is room for shuffling among the depth chart behind Tramaine Brock (who has had his injury concerns as well). Johnson could potentially surpass Shareece Wright and start alongside Brock this season, but he will likely end up being the first corner called upon to start should either go down with injury.
Johnson was drafted by the 49ers for depth at the cornerback position. If he doesn't make the 53-man roster, he will likely be placed on the practice squad.
