Lane Johnson: How Will Eagles Newest OT Fare in the Pros?
Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports
Johnson is one of the most athletic offensive tackles in this year's draft. He should start from day one for the Eagles because he is talented in both the run game and pass protection.
The best part about Johnson's game is that he has a relatively high ceiling. He's only played one college season at left tackle but proved to be extremely dominant in that one season. Johnson is only going to get better, and that should be pleasing to Philadelphia.
The Eagles boast two of the better fantasy football players in LeSean McCoy and Michael Vick. The presence of Johnson should help both of them have better seasons.
Johnson is great in pass protection but is quick enough to get out into open space and make plays when McCoy or Vick run.
There is no doubt that Johnson will start from day one for the Philadelphia Eagles, but it might not be at left tackle. With Jason Peters returning from an Achilles injury, it's likely that Johnson will be the starting right tackle.
However, that certainly won't be his final position for the Eagles. It's only a matter of time before Johnson starts at left tackle in Philadelphia.
While offensive tackle wasn't the biggest need for the Eagles, this was a solid pick for Philadelphia. With Johnson, the Eagles get a franchise offensive tackle that will help in every aspect of the offense.
