- Big leg punter who creates lots of fair catches.
- Highly accurate when trying to pinpoint punts.

Per WalterFootball.com, Johnston is projected to be picked anywhere between the 6th round to not being picked and becoming an undrafted free agent.
Regardless of his draft status, Johnston will almost certainly get NFL camp invites and will battle for an NFL punting job. The biggest question facing him is whether he can switch punting styles from his rugby punts — and early indications show that he can. The Buckeyes fans’ favorite punter will look to continue improving and make an NFL roster this fall.
