Get to Know Donaven Johnson

With the likes of Jack Fisher and Mark Leonard lost to graduation, it will be up to Johnson and other senior Isaiah Huber to lead the receiving core for the Panthers this upcoming season. Johnson is a an aggressive receiver that has strength to go up and get it versus the defensive back defending the ball. Much like a driver that can't see a blind spot, Johnson's has a good abilty to create seperation and hit those routes with his superb route running. As for linebacker, Johnson's strengths consist of being physical with his hits, watching when a receiver is going to make a cut in their route, and working in coverage when he has to drop back and guard a receiver, running back, etc.
