NFL Draft 2022: 10 players New York Giants could target if they trade back
By Reese Nasser
Zion Johnson has separated himself as one of the top offensive line prospects in this year’s class. Johnson, a three-year starter at Boston College, also spent two seasons playing at Davidson College.
After transferring to Boston College, Johnson showed improvement with each season. This past season he was among the best guards in the nation. He played in a total of 777 snaps and allowed just one sack and six total pressures. He also posted PFF grades of 81.6 in pass blocking, 84.4 in run blocking, and an overall grade of 84.4.
Over the past three seasons, Johnson has started 30 games and appeared in 36. In this time he has amassed 2,288 total snaps. He has played at a consistent level. He allowed just three sacks over this entire stretch. It is also worth noting that he has been penalized just four times over this amount of time as well.
Johnson is also one of the more experienced players in this year’s class. He has played in 58 collegiate games and has spent time at both left tackle and left guard. While he is projected to be a guard in the NFL, the experience at tackle could prove to be extremely beneficial.
