Mitchell Allen Johnson (born March 1, 1942) is a former American football offensive lineman in the National Football League for the Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, Los Angeles Rams and the Cleveland Browns. He played college football at UCLA and Los Angeles State College.
He transferred to UCLA after his sophomore season, becoming a two-year starter at left tackle. In addition to his talents as a blocker, his athletic ability allowed him to score two touchdowns on tackle-eligible plays.
