1.04 Philadelphia Eagles Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma (6-6, 303)
Lane Johnson was selected as the fouth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. Johnson is a converted tight end blessed with quick feet and the size and speed necessary to be an elite offensive tackle. Johnson is considered by some experts as the offensive tackle with the highest ceiling, although he remains raw due to only playing the position for two to three years.
Johnson projects as a great fit for new Eagles’ coach Chip Kelly’s uptempo offense, as Johnson has the quickness and athleticism to adapt to a fast paced scheme. He’ll be able to play on either side of the line and provide versatility to an Eagles’ O-line that needs the help. If he continues to improve at the pace he’s currently at and maximizes his talent and skill set, Johnson should be a staple on the Eagles’ line for years to come.
