Eagles selected Oregon LT Lane Johnson with the No. 4 overall pick.
Johnson (6-6, 303) has longer arms (35 1/4") than Luke Joeckel and Eric Fisher, and beat both in the forty (4.72), ten-yard split (1.61), and vertical (34") at the Combine, in addition to bench reps (28). Also flashing a mean streak on the field, Johnson is short only on experience. He started 23 games for the Sooners, 12 as a junior right tackle and 11 as a senior on Landry Jones' blind side after playing tight end and defensive end as a sophomore. Johnson allowed two sacks and nine QB knockdowns last year. Johnson arguably possesses more upside than any lineman in this draft. He'll slide in on Michael Vick's blindside in Philly, leaving Jason Peters at left tackle and kicking Todd Herremans inside to guard. Johnson is an absolute perfect fit for Chip Kelly's uptempo offense. Thu, Apr 25, 2013 08:44:00 PM

The Baltimore Sun's Mike Preston writes the Ravens are keeping an eye on Oklahoma T Lane Johnson.

"Johnson is athletic, durable and the pro scouts like his demeanor. He plays with the nastiness of a defensive lineman," Preston writes. The Ravens would have to trade up quite far to select Johnson, who is expected to go in the top seven selections at worst.

NFL Network's Mike Mayock says three OT's could go in the top three selections.

Mayock said he expects the Kansas City Chiefs to select Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel, the Jacksonville Jaguars to select Central Michigan's Eric Fisher and potentially the Oakland Raiders selecting Oklahoma's Lane Johnson. Mayock says one other possibility is the Raiders selecting Sharrif Floyd, the defensive tackle out of Florida.

Cardinals beat writer Kent Somers notes the team feels "better about their tackles than outsiders do," and might pass on Oklahoma T Lane Johnson because of it.

Somers chose Alabama guard Chance Warmack, noting "the Cardinals like a guy who can step in and play right away." We think guard is an option at No. 7, but not if one of the three top tackles is available. However, it is doubtful one of the top three players at the position lasts until that selection.

One NFL scout told Bob McGinn Oklahoma T Lane Johnson is "a fraud," when discussing the offensive lineman's play.

"He can't run block," the scout added. "I don't think he plays strong. I don't think he moves guys." Two other scouts McGinn spoke with came away impressed with Johnson's natural power. "Built like a basketball player," another said. "He's got narrow hips, and those are the guys I usually don't like. But he has power. I don't know where he gets it from. I'm just amazed at what the guy is."

Oklahoma T Lane Johnson thinks there's a "good possibility" the Philadelphia Eagles draft him.

"It's a good possibility," Johnson said. "What they're going to do offensively really fits what I excel at -- up-tempo, zone offense. But you never know what's going to happen come draft day." The Eagles hold the No. 4 overall pick.

The Sideline View's Lance Zierlein tweeted there will be teams trading into the top 10 to target an offensive tackle.

"That almost feels like a lock," Zierlein added. He also mentioned that DJ Fluker will go higher than many expect. We think there's a chance Fluker is selected at pick No. 11 by the Chargers, but trades can obviously change everything. These tackles will fly off the board.

Oklahoma T Lane Johnson is visiting the Cardinals on Monday and Tuesday.

Johnson will meet and have dinner with the team's general manager and head coach. The Oklahoma tackle is widely considered the third best player at his position in this class but could be a top five selection if things fall accordingly. The Cardinals are in a realistic position to trade up.

NFL Network's Albert Breer notes the Dolphins believe Jonathan Martin gives them flexibility to go LT or RT during the draft.

Martin moved to left tackle after Jake Long's injury, but we worry about his long term success at either position. However, if the Dolphins' decision makers are optimistic that he can hold up on the left side, it is unlikely they will trade up for one of the top three tackles.

Oklahoma T Lane Johnson will visit the Eagles on Sunday.

It is not out of the realm of possibility that all three top tackles are selected by pick No. 5. There are no "sure things" when discussing prospects, but these tackles are more proven commodities and will likely fly off the board. In any scenario, Johnson will likely be the last one available.

Oklahoma T Lane Johnson recently visited the Jets, Panthers, Saints, and Jaguars.

Johnson also worked out for the Eagles and Chiefs. The two likeliest teams to trade up for Johnson's are the Cardinals and Dolphins, with the Lions at No. 5 seeming like another possibility. We expect Joeckel and Fisher to be taken off the board quickly, which would greatly benefit Johnson.

Oklahoma T Lane Johnson will visit the Jacksonville Jaguars on April 10.

The Jaguars hold the No. 2 overall selection and are considering multiple players. It's said to be up to six players that they're considering and it's hard not to believe that Johnson is one of them. Johnson is a great athlete and possess immense upside at tackle. He could very well go in the top two selections even though not many have projected him so early.

Oklahoma T Lane Johnson is visiting the Saints on Tuesday.

The team has a huge void at left tackle, but without a second-round pick it could be tough to move up and secure a top three tackle. A more viable solution could be to trade in the opposite direction and possibly target Terron Armstead or Dallas Thomas.

NFL agent Drew Rosenhaus said he expects the Dolphins to take an OT in the first-round.

"At this point, that's what I'm hearing from everyone," Rosenhaus said on WSVN-7. It is a great idea on paper, but we think the team will need to trade up in order to land one of the top three prospects at the position. The most likely being Lane Johnson, dealing with the Browns for pick No. 6.

Oklahoma T Lane Johnson had the "freakiest Combine in the history of our coverage," according to NFL Network's Mike Mayock.

Measuring in at 6'6/303 pounds, Johnson ran a 4.72 "official" forty while also recording a 34 inch vertical, 118 inch broad jump, 7.31 three cone, and 28 bench press reps. We expect the former quarterback recruit to be a top ten pick in April's draft, likely to a team trading up.
