PITTSBURGH (AP)

The Pittsburgh Steelers have selected Oregon tight end David Paulson in the seventh round of the NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-4, 241-pound Paulson had 31 receptions for 438 yards and six touchdowns during his senior season with the Ducks.

Paulson will join a crowded tight end position that includes Heath Miller, Weslye Saunders and Leonard Pope. Steelers tight end coach James Daniel says Paulson reminds him of a fullback with speed who could contribute on special teams.
