The Lions traded up to the 43rd overall pick in this year's draft to select Johnson in the second round, and one look at the tape from his junior year at Auburn tells you why. The 21-year-old is an explosive runner, hitting holes and getting to the second level before linebackers can blink, with great balance and an aggressive edge allowing him to pick up tough yards after contact. The Le'Veon Bell comparison is undoubtedly ambitious, as he does not quite have Bell's otherworldly vision and patience when it comes to finding holes, but Johnson does have three-down potential. There are concerns about his durability given his running style and skinny frame, but he will not be asked to take on a massive workload right away with LeGarrette Blount arriving from Philadelphia and Theo Riddick still around to serve as the primary third-down and receiving back. If Johnson adapts to the NFL quickly, though, he has the talent to steal touches from both of his veteran teammates.
