Ourlads' Analysis:

2009 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DAVID JOHNSON: Arkansas State, 6014 260 4.76. Three-year starter. Goes by D.J. Projects to a fullback. Long arms and big hands to control defenders when he blocks. Played as a move H-back. Can read and adjust on the run. Good blocker in space. Athletic with lateral quickness and balance. Flashes some first step quickness into his routes and into his blocks. Has some run after catch ability. Developmental project as a lead blocking I-formation fullback. Needs technique work in every phase of his game. A big question is whether he wants to pay the price to make a team with a history of inconsistencies and underachieving in his career. Has the tools to play on Sunday. Arkansas State was second in the Sun Belt and 21st in the nation in rushing. Caught 22 passes for 356 yards and 5 touchdowns in 2008, averaging 16.2 yards per catch. OSR:14/18 as a tight end. Seventh round/priority free agent. (A-33 3/4, H-10 3/4, BP-21, SS-4.43).
