Tyron Johnson, WR, Oklahoma State #13

6002, 193, 4.52

Notes: First name is pronounced TIE-ruhn. From New Orleans, LA. Began his college career at Louisiana State. Also had offers from Texas A&M, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Michigan, Oklahoma and UCLA. Played in 9 games at wide receiver as a freshman, catching 9 passes for 150 yards and 2 touchdowns, including a long reception of 61 yards. Transferred from LSU to Oklahoma state, expressing desire to play in a more wide open offense, in 2016; redshirted under NCAA transfer rules. Played in 10 games, served one-game suspension for team rules violation, caught 18-293-3 (16.3 avg.) in 2017. Played in all 13 games and caught 53-845-7 (15.9 avg.) and rushed once for a 1-yard TD in 2018.

Positives: Very good combination of size and speed. Solid route runner. Can create separation. Very good hands and body control. Snatches the ball with his hands. Able to utilize his size well and is effective in contested-catch situations. Very good run-after-the-catch skills. Makes big plays. Will block downfield. Can return kickoffs and punts.

Negatives: Needs continued refinement with route-running precision. Lacks elite suddenness and burst. Room to improve as a blocker downfield.

Summary: Solid all-around prospect with the tools to contribute as an outside receiver or in the slot. Reminds me a bit of Chad Johnson at a similar stage of development. Very good upside.
