How the Raiders 2019 rookie class performed at the NFL Combine
Isaiah Johnson was praised by the Raiders’ staff all year due to his combination of size and speed. But, Johnson suffered a facial fracture in training camp, causing him to miss the first half of the season.
Johnson made his NFL debut in week nine and continued to see action in small sample sizes, playing in five games. Ultimately, Johnson’s rookie year was basically a wash as he was only given minimal opportunities after he fully recovered, but with a full offseason to prepare he may get an opportunity to play more snaps in 2020.
The bottom line is, the Raiders need Johnson to step up big time in Year 2, as the cornerback position as a whole is a bit of a weakness right now. Sure, they will upgrade the position group in free agency and possibly the NFL Draft, but if Johnson can pan out, this draft class becomes even that much more special.
