Seahawks sign Johnson as UDFA | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Seahawks signed South Dakota State WR Cade Johnson as an undrafted free agent. Johnson was a 0-star recruit out of high school, walked on at South Dakota State and was redshirted in 2016. He made an impact as a kick returner the following year -- and then exploded as a receiver. Johnson racked up 67 catches for 1,332 yards and a school-record 17 TDs in 2018 and followed that up with a 72-1,222-8 line in 2019. He opted out of the 2020 campaign but put together what Pro Football Focus called an “elite performance” at the Senior Bowl. Johnson goes just 5’11 and 184 pounds but plays well through contact and has plenty of juice to his routes. We’ve seen him compared to new teammate Tyler Lockett. But Johnson is obviously a long shot for fantasy value.
