Johnson lists Bryce Young, Jalen Carter, Will Anderson, Bijan Robinson, and C.J. Stroud as his top-five players.
While this isn’t necessarily what Johnson is predicting as the draft order, he identifies each of these players as a can’t-miss prospect.
Young and Stroud have been typically identified as the top two quarterbacks in the draft.
Recently, Young has been rumored to be the Carolina Panthers’ choice, who hold the 1st overall pick.
For several weeks, Stroud was a near-lock to be drafted second-overall to the Houston Texans.
Those rumors have soured as of late, citing that the Texans could target another position with the second pick.
Anderson and Carter are highly regarded defensive prospects and are likely to go in the top ten overall.
However, given Carter’s potential involvement in a fatal car crash, his draft stock might fall on draft night.
Regardless of where these players get drafted, Johnson is confident in his evaluation of all five players, which includes Robinson.
Robinson has been highly touted throughout the pre-draft process, as one of the best running back prospects in the last several years.
