  • Panthers' DJ Johnson: Starting Sunday

    Johnson will start in place of the injured Justin Houston (hamstring) this Sunday, David Newton of reports.

    Head coach Frank Reich told reporters the rookie linebacker out of Oregon has shown improvement throughout the year, and he's in line to make the first start of his career this Sunday.

  • Panthers' DJ Johnson: Added by Carolina in third round

    The Panthers selected Johnson in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 80th overall.

    Johnson is an unusual prospect. He's hyper athletic and was generally productive at Oregon, but his skill set is underdeveloped after bouncing back and forth between defensive end and tight end for six years going back to 2017. The result is that Johnson is both raw and over-aged at 25 -- normally cause for the NFL to ignore a prospect -- but Johnson is an exception because he's such a remarkable athlete. Even at a sturdy 6-foot-4, 260 pounds, Johnson boasts a jaw-dropping 4.49-second 40-yard dash, giving him unique upside despite his uneven profile.
