Taron Johnson is a cornerback for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League. He attended Weber State University for his college football career and played for the Weber State Wildcats.
Johnson took part in the football program at Sheldon High School, which was located in Sacramento, California. Due to the extraordinary level of his talent, he was promoted to the varsity team of his school when he was only a sophomore, which is one year earlier than the norm. Later on, he would become the first player ever selected from the school for the NFL Draft.
After graduating from high school, Johnson had only one collegiate football position offer, and he decided to accept Weber State’s offer because it was the only one.
As a freshman at Weber State, Johnson made five starts; he then made all of his team’s starts. The following year, as a junior, he tied the mark that he had established the previous year as a sophomore when he intercepted 12 passes and set a new school record.
He finished his senior year in 2017 with a total of three interceptions, nine pass breakups, and 49 tackles, which earned him the Big Sky Defensive Player of the Year award as well as unanimous First Time All-American honors.
