Johnson should be thrown into the mix at right tackle. It will be tempting to throw him out there day one as the starting right tackle and teach him to pass block on the fly. However, having gone through six quarterbacks during the Austin Pasztor experiment should make the coaching staff think twice about that.
At minimum, Johnson should be brought in for jumbo sets as a tight end to block. His ability to create movement at the line of scrimmage and get to the second level is too good to leave on the bench.
He is a better run blocker coming out of college than both Shon Coleman or Cameron Erving. Erving was the best pass blocker at tackle coming out of college. Shon Coleman has learned for a year and looks extremely promising as a run blocker.
The right tackle position battle will be extremely interesting to watch. All three candidates bring strengths and weakness to the table.
Depending on how Johnson develops, he could be a long-term answer at right tackle. And even though I still want to put the heir apparent at level tackle talk on hold, he could be a phenomenal left tackle.
But he must figure out how to pass block at the NFL level.
He has a long way to go and a short time to get there.
