On December 26, the Minnesota Golden Gophers take on the Auburn Tigers in the Outback Bowl. Although 6-foot-2-inch, 200-pound wide receiver Tyler Johnson could’ve declared early last season, he opted to prioritize earning his undergraduate degree over leaving early for the NFL. Despite opting to stay an extra year in school, Johnson has a very intriguing prospect profile.
Despite the questionable quarterback play at Minnesota, Johnson broke out in his sophomore year. Johnson followed up with a strong junior year, posting a 0.49 Dominator Rating.
