Storm Johnson RB Central FloridaMeasurables: 6'0 209 32" arms 9.5" handsTesting Results: 4.60 40 yard dash, 16 bench reps (225 lbs), 35.5" vertical, 118" broad jumpScouting Notes: An underrated back who was overshadowed in 2013 by his more heralded quarterback, but on film you can tell Johnson was the heart and sout of the UCF offense. A very smooth athlete with outstanding instincts and vision for the cutback, a very creative runner with the tools to get away with it. Much better football speed then his 40 time would indicate. Much better than the sum of his parts, gets the most out of his body and athletic ability. Has rare vision and cutback ability. Has sneaky speed, good enough speed to get to the corner, may not look like he's moving that fast but then he gets to the corner and all the sudden he's turning it up the field and gaining separation in the open field. A very smooth runner, turns the corner without losing speed. Lacks a very strong plant foot, rounds off his cuts a bit too much. Has great balance and determination as a runner, doesn't go down easy and always looks to make the big play, never goes out of bounds on his own. Knows how to attack the defense and make them pay when they overpursue, could be the best cutback runner on the board but also powerfully built in his upper body, has the strength to run between the tackles and get the tough yards, runs with very good lg drive and forward lean. Seems to have a knack for big plays, especially as a pass receiver, very good natural hands and a very instinctive and dangerous open field runner. Seems to be a one handed runner, seems to always carry the ball in his right hand, limiting his effectiveness to fend off tacklers when running left. Runs with great determination but goes down too easy on ankle trip up's, would benefit from picking his feet up more as a runner. He only spent one year as the featured back, so there's still plenty of life still in his legsBottom Line: Tremendous vision, balance, and cutback instincts are the biggest assets that make this Central Florida Storm one of the most intriguing and underrated offensive weapons on the board.
