Round 4 Target: Tyler Johnson, Minnesota

One of the draft’s biggest mysteries has to be Tyler Johnson out of Minnesota. I am not sure what happened with Johnson and the Combine, but he did not attend. Because this class is so deep, I think that hurt him in a big way.

Fortunately for some team, he’s going to fall a little bit. If Johnson is available in the fourth round, he is an absolute steal. He could end up being the steal of the draft. I truly believe in his talent, having watched a lot of Gopher games this year.

He isn’t talked about as much as he should be, but Johnson has the mold of a true number one receiver. He’s a strong body who can go up and make the most difficult catches look easy.

Johnson did this over and over again in 2019, and each time you just have to laugh, because it somehow surprises you, yet it shouldn’t.

In 2019, Johnson ended his final season with Minnesota catching 86 passes for 1,318 yards and 13 touchdowns and was extremely productive during his time with the Gophers.

Reading a lot of the scouting reports and draft content on Johnson, one name comes up often when comparing him to an NFL name: A.J. Brown. If the Raiders find themselves a similar talent in the fourth round, shoot — Carr will be a happy man.
