Since entering the league, Jaylon Johnson has only had one interception and one forced stumble. Picking the Chicago Bears in the second round (50th place) in the 2020 NFL Draft has a massive opportunity ahead of them.
With a general manager, head coach and a new defensive system comes a whole new set of expectations. Ryan Paul and Matt Eberflus didn’t draft Jaylon Johnson, so he has to prove to them that he’s the right man for the job.
Chicago Bears defense could make Jaylon Johnson a star
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: upsetting the defensive line makes the secondary’s job easier. Chicago Bears coach, Matt Eberfels, calls for speed and instincts. But after the Bears drafted cornerback Kyler Gordon, Jaylon Johnson is born into a new role on this team.
As a beginner, mistakes happen. It’s rare for a player to jump from college to the NFL and not only have an immediate impact, but also avoid blunders caused by inexperience.
If we think of Kyler Gordon analytically, we should expect him to have a great season. But it certainly comes with a warning of novice mistakes that likely won’t cancel out his success.
This leads to Jaylon Johnson’s new role in the Chicago Bears. He has a golden opportunity: the role model. Focus on professional football Rank Johnson as the 28th best cornerback in the NFL. That’s too bad considering the hype surrounding this player and all the quantifiable things he has.
But Matt Ebervlosse’s defense could help Johnson take the next step in his career. With an attacking football mentality and really honed in forcing coups, Jaylon Johnson should have a field day in 2022.
Johnson should be proud to become a veteran presence in the locker room. He comes with new expectations for him to lead and has the facilities to succeed in this role. But it all boils down to being successful in what he did and showing how it is done to the uninitiated.
