Overview

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. Texas A&M found out his value as a blocker in the Red Wolves' shocking September upset in College Station. Had an arm span of 33 3/4 inches and a hand span of 10 3/4 inches at the combine.

High School

Caught 20 passes as a senior and two touchdowns for the Zebras ... Primarily used as a blocker, but runs a 4.7-second 40-yard dash ... Two-year letterman ... Helped his team to a 10-3 record ... All-State pick as a senior and two-time all-conference ... Played baseball as well.

Analysis

Round 7, Pick 32 (241) David Johnson TE 6'2" 260 Arkansas State
Pick Analysis:Johnson is an H-back and a Steelers-type player with quickness and the ability to run vertical routes. He had 16 yards per catch in college. He's a good fit for what Pittsburgh tries to do on offense.
