Cleveland Browns draft TE Malcolm Johnson in the 6th round

The Cleveland Browns selected Mississippi State tight end Malcolm Johnson in the sixth round with the 195th pick of 2015 NFL Draft.

The pick was acquired in an earlier trade with the Houston Texans.

"I feel like I can be a big asset to the offense coming up this year just on offense, and special teams," Johnson said. "I really do feel like it was a great pick for me and for them."

Johnson caught 10 career touchdowns for the Bulldogs while starting on and off all four seasons for the SEC West program. He was a team captain during his senior season, which saw Mississippi State reach No.1 in the rankings midway through the season.

Scouts report the 6-foot-2, 231-pound target is a hybrid who can play tight end, H-Back and even some fullback out of the backfield. Johnson even played receiver on some downs for Mississippi State, and said he has "sticky hands."

"Basically being versatile and being able to do more than one position so basically a tight end, fullback and H-back," Johnson said, explaining what he can bring to the table. "That's what I expressed to them I could do, and they'll hold me accountable to that and I appreciate it."

Johnson was lauded as a vocal leader and a workout warrior during his time with the Bulldogs.

"He's the type of guy that (will) look out for you," tight end Brandon Hill told the Clarion Ledger .
