Undrafted Jon'vea Johnson turning heads at Dallas Cowboys camp

FRISCO, Texas — Jon’vea Johnson has been in Dallas for only a short time, but already the former University of Toledo receiver has made a strong first impression.

None bigger than on his new receivers coach, Sanjay Lal.

“Playmaking ability, true speed,” Lal said. “He’s unaffected by changes in the route stem, so the defense, he just runs through it like you’re supposed to. Bottom line is he’s making plays.”

And Lal, in his second season with the Cowboys after previously holding similar roles with the Oakland Raiders, New York Jets, Buffalo Bills, and Indianapolis Colts, also sees Johnson distancing himself from other rookies in one major way.
