In Johnson's case, he left college as a junior, with less college coaching than most players. I also believe that he ran track, rather than participate in spring football at UMiami, again reducing his college coaching.
I'd disagree with the route running mention. AJ was a surprisingly good route runner last year and it is one of his strengths. I'd probably disagree that he would show more improvement than most WR's going into his second year also since he had one of the better rookie years ever. He can improve on his year but to be one of the guys with a huge improvement is a stretch. The one area he may markedly improve is TD production. He can triple that (4) if he has a great year.
