New, comments

The Steelers seem to love tight ends and it seems like they draft one every year , this time they selected David Johnson from Arkansas State with the 241st selection.  Johnson is an H-back/ Tight End prospect that ran a 4.7 in his 40 time at the combine.  Scouting reports have Johnson as a solid blocker who lacks great hands but could become a potential hybrid style tight end. says:

Johnson's statistics did not put him on any All-American teams, but his 22 receptions in 2008 went for 356 yards (an excellent 16.2-yard average) and five touchdowns and he did make second-team All-Sun Belt. The combination of his blocking and receiving skills is what puts him among this year's best senior H-back prospects.
