Kerryon Johnson Player Overview

Johnson hurt his right shoulder late in his final Auburn season but returned for the SEC Championship game the following week. It's worth mentioning here because Johnson had the same shoulder repaired in January 2016. The Lions clearly weren't concerned when they traded up to draft Johnson in Round 2. He also lost a 2016 game to a right ankle sprain in 2016 and 2 more to a right hamstring injury in September 2017. Johnson might have trouble grabbing true primary work right away, but Lions coaches have said they see 3-down potential in him.
