Last year, the Pittsburgh Steelers took offensive guard Kevin Dotson in the fourth round of the NFL draft and the pick turned out to be brilliant. He was the type of college player who flew under the radar but coaches appreciated how much talent he had and hoped he would fall to them.

This year the Steelers did something very similar in the fourth round when they selected former Texas A&M linebacker Buddy Johnson. Johnson isn’t a player draft pundits gushed over as they did for guys like Nick Bolton and Pete Werner at linebacker. But as you check out these highlights of Johnson’s play you will understand why he’s the type of prospect draft writers might miss but a smart coach like Mike Tomlin wasn’t going to.
