Houston cornerback Isaiah Johnson is yet a another player we’ll likely be discussing for a few more days as a possible 2019 NFL Draft selection of the Pittsburgh Steelers after it was confirmed that general manager Kevin Colbert was at his pro day. With our draft profile of Johnson already posted on the site, a few readers are already asking to see more about the plays he made during his college career at Houston.
In an effort to provide you as much information as possible when it comes to several top players in the 2019 draft class, I am currently putting together as many contextualization posts as I can between now and the end of April and especially when it comes to players who the Steelers might select in the various rounds. In this post, we’ll contextualize most of the defensive plays made by Johnson during his college career and specifically those that included him registering ether a tackle for loss, a sack, a pass defensed, an interception, or a forced fumble.
Johnson registered 4 interceptions and 14 total pass breakups in the 23 games that he played in on the defensive side of the football at Houston dating back to 2017. He also had 2 total tackles that resulted in lost yardage and a quarterback hurry during his college career. I was able to track down all but 4 of the 21 key defensive plays listed above that Johnson made during his college career and they are all contextualized for you in the table below and in order. Each play is linked to a video of it on Youtube.
