Three More Frogs Headed To NFL Camps
July 27, 2011
FORT WORTH, Texas -- Three more TCU football players have received National Football League free-agent contracts, putting 11 members of the Horned Frogs' 2010 senior class in NFL training camps this summer.
TCU had five draft picks this year to go with six free-agent signees.
ESPN.com recently ranked TCU No. 1 in the nation for developing NFL talent. In his 10 seasons as the Horned Frogs' head coach, Gary Patterson has had 29 players drafted with 59 in NFL camps.
Frosch was a four-year starter and two-time All-Mountain West Conference selection.
Griffin remains the lone true freshman to start in the Patterson head coaching era. He was a four-year letterman at nose tackle. Griffin joins former TCU offensive tackle Nic Richmond on the Chargers' roster.
Johnson, a second-team Academic All-American in 2010, was one of just three Horned Frogs to play in all 52 games the last four seasons. He came to TCU as a walk-on before earning a scholarship and totaled 85 receptions in his career. His 23-yard touchdown catch in the Rose Bowl provided TCU's first points of the game. He later helped seal the 21-19 victory over Wisconsin by recovering an onside kick in the final two minutes.
Now a Bengal, Johnson will again be a teammate of former Horned Frog signal caller Andy Dalton.
