NFL Draft 2022: 10 players New York Giants could target if they trade back
By Reese Nasser
Florida State’s Jermaine Johnson can be an impact player from day one in the NFL.
After spending the past four years at Independence Community College, and the University of Georgia, Johnson found himself at Florida State this past year. In his lone season at FSU, Johnson reached career highs across the board. He also saw his stock soar to an all-time high.
During his two seasons at Georgia, Johnson was put on a defensive line full of NFL talent. While having to split time with other high-level prospects, Johnson still found a way to be effective. In 22 games with the Bulldogs, Johnson recorded 36 tackles, eight tackles for loss, and 6.5 sacks.
In 2021, his only season at FSU, Johnson doubled every stat that he had in his two years at Georgia. He finished the season starting in all 12 games. He recorded 70 tackles, 18 tackles for loss, and 12 sacks.
At 6-4 and 260 pounds, Johnson has the size needed for the modern edge position. His blend of power and speed has allowed him to be effective up to this point. The things that worked for him in college should also allow him to succeed at the next level.
