“Gardner-Johnson totaled 66 tackles, nine for a loss, three sacks, two passes broken up and two interceptions in 2018 from mainly playing slot cornerback for the Gators. He played well overall for them and was a productive presence in the middle of the field. Gardner-Johnson is a solid tackler and has turned into an aggressive run defender. Some team sources feel that Gardner-Johnson is a better prospect than Duke Dawson, who was the Gators' slot corner in 2017 and a second-round pick by the Patriots. Gardner-Johnson had a solid combine and ran well in the 40.”
