Draft Scouting Report

Draft Scouting Report:

Rating: 90.63 (All-Pro)

Pro Comparison: Andrus Peat


Paris Johnson Jr. is a consistently good run blocker when he doesn't get too upright, and he uses leverage well. His passpro needs refinement, and his footwork can be sloppy at times. He does offer position flexibility on game days -- he was the Buckeyes' starting right guard in 2021 before moving to left tackle for the 2022 season. He's one of the best offensive linemen in this draft class.


  • Will sit in passpro set with good anchor, staying in-balance
  • Ability to re-anchor but sometimes struggles against strong, edge rushers who play with a low center of gravity
  • Plus athlete. but it's important to remember that he is still raw
  • Moves well laterally, can get out in space
  • Quick feet; when he's in balance it allows him to mirror well
  • Consistently shows ability to sustain run blocks and if the opportunity presents itself, will pancake the defensive end into the turf
  • When feet and hands are in concert, he can stonewall pass rushers


Can sometimes get too high in pass sets and lose leverage

  • Can be susceptible to long-arm, particularly since he has tendency to play more upright
  • Sometimes will overset and get beaten by inside pass rush move, then has to rely on athleticism to make up for it
  • Extremely raw, relying on athleticism to win; will need to become a technician to be trusted at LT in NFL

Combine Results:

  • Broad Jump: 9 feet, 2 inches
  • Bench Press: 29 reps
