1. First round, 4th overall: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma

Lane Johnson is one of the most freakishly athletic offensive linemen you will probably ever see. The former quarterback and tight end joins an Eagles offensive line that was one of the most depleted and weakest in the NFL last season. Mike Vick was injured and sacked a terribly high amount of times last season, and having Johnson will significantly upgrade the pass protection. He has the kind of athleticism to be a key piece of an offensive attack run by Chip Kelly that is aggressive, fast-paced, and very versatile. The Eagles had to be jumping for joy when he fell in their laps at number four overall. I think this was a perfect fit for the Eagles’ offense, and a huge upgrade to the worst area of their offense.
