    I though maybe DJ would follow Mendenhall to wherever else, so he could lead block again for him.
    PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

    I just feel there is more value in a TE than a receiver in Haley's offense, but moreso we don't really know if Heath will be the same Miller we had before the injury. Also, with Miller's age and contract I thought it would be good to get a top TE now while we have opportunity.
    This kid is terrific, he's like a vacuum on the field catching everything in sight, but my name isn't Colbert so my opinion doesn't count.

    Hawaiian,
    Your right, I have him in the second round in my mock but would of moved him up.

    I want him with the first. Still do. Johnson is a serviceable backup and will do OK with Heath out of commission.

    haha .... Another idiotic signing.

    Do they even watch film of the other 31 teams out there? Do we not have a pro player personnel guy anymore? Does their "Available Free Agent" list at every position have all ex-Steelers on it?

    That's the only way to explain David Johnson being at the top of any "TE" list I know of.

    David Johnson is not a TE.
    He is a large, round waste of a roster spot

    This guy's a blocker and not much more. Weslye Saunders was cut last year and signed with the Colts, he was the better receiver. I think D. Johnson and Paulson will fight it out with whatever rookie we draft. Hopefully its Eifert and we cut D. Johnson after Miller returns from injury. I like Will Johnson better at FB or HB better than D Johnson as well.
    1. C.J. Mosley LB Alabama
    2. Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt
    3. (comp) Philip Gaines CB Rice
    4. Arthur Lynch TE Georgia
    5. Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5. (comp) Derrick Hopkins DT Virginia Tech
    6. Josh Mauro DE Stanford
    6. (comp) Shaquil Barrett OLB Colorado State
    7. Quincy Enunwa WR Nebraska

    Exactly.... Saunders was a good receiving target. He shouldn't have been cut.

    W. Johnson was a better FB and no worse of a receiver than D. Johnson.

    Then you have Paulson (who Tomlin likes) and saw playing time and of course Miller. This signing makes NO SENSE!

    It is smoke and mirrors for the draft and a camp body.
