4. Eagles – OT Lane Johnson

Oklahoma Senior

Measurables: 6’6″ 303 lbs 35 1/4 arm length

NFL Combine: 4.69 40-yard 28 bench reps

NFL Comparison: Joe Staley

Johnson is abnormally athletic for a tackle, having played quarterback in high school prior to converting to tackle at Oklahoma.

The Eagles shore up the offensive line a year after Michael Vick was beaten up due to poor blocking and if Philadelphia is going to succeed they need to keep Vick on the field.

There is concern that Johnson needs work in the run game and has risen since the Combine tremendously, but Philadelphia definitely improves the offensive line with this pick.
