Running back David Johnson catches the ball so naturally, he looks like he belongs with the receiver's group. But can he gain the tough yards inside? That's something the Cardinals missed last year.
Johnson's isn't the thumper complement that some were expecting that the Cardinals would acquire to join Andre Ellington in the backfield. Instead, they elected to draft a running back with a similar skillset to Ellington so that the offense doesn't miss a beat if something happens to their starter. We view Johnson as a backup and the proper handcuff for Ellington owners.
