Re: What were Hunter Johnson’s Deficiencies when here?

I watched more than a few games when he was at Northwestern and it’s difficult to decide if he made their offense bad or it was going to be bad anyway (maybe both because their O has been horrendous the last few years). Honestly he doesn’t seem to have any great talents (legs, arm or playmaking ability) so I don’t know where the 5 star rating came from. More likely he will be a dedicated “get Cade prepared” guy to be a resource to learn the offense and what college defenses do. I don’t see him getting any meaningful playing time and the fact he was looking to be a GA confirms that.
1) Not as quick with his reads as Trevor was (more like DJU) 2) Prone to interceptions (similar to DJU) 3) Struggled to create plays outside of the pocket (probably a little worse than DJU)
Strengths: 1) Seemed to get along with the team well (similar to DJU) 2) Understood the playbook (maybe a little better than DJU) 3) Had some touch on the ball (not as good as Trevor, but maybe a little better than DJU)
I like him as a player, understood why he left, and I'm exited about him coming back to get a Clemson MBA, give QB depth, and maybe learn something about coaching.
