2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Ronald Johnson, WR, USC

Ronald Johnson never quite lived up to his potential at USC, but the speedy receiver was usually very productive when he was on the field. As a freshman in 2007, Johnson was a reserve receiver and caught seven passes for 110 yards and one touchdown. On a team with Fred Davis, Patrick Turner and Videl Hazelton, getting that much action was impressive. However, Johnson did turn into the team's top kickoff returner and did a solid job. In 2008 Johnson came into his own and caught 33 passes for 570 yards and eight touchdowns. That was supposed to lead to big things in 2009, but a collarbone injury limited Johnson's playing time and production.

Johnson was again supposed to be the main receiving threat for the Trojans in 2010, but freshman Robert Woods had something to say about that. Woods even took over a majority of the kickoff returning duties that Johnson had done for the most part since his freshman year. Yet, Johnson did take over the punt return duties and returned one for a touchdown. He also caught 64 passes for 692 yards and a team high eight touchdowns.

Johnson can run a sub 4.4 40 and that speed will get him drafted in the second or third round. He has decent hands and plenty of experience. Johnson's ability to return kickoffs and punts will make him a little more valuable, but generously listed as 6-0, Johnson is a slot receiver, but any NFL team would love to have a slot receiver who can play like he can.
