Report: Lane Johnson To Visit

Posted Apr 12, 2013

Adam Caplan of The Sideline View was the first to report that the Eagles are hosting former Oklahoma offensive tackle Lane Johnson this weekend.

Johnson is a freak athlete who dominated the NFL Scouting Combine. At 6-6, 303 pounds, the former Sooner played quarterback, tight end and defensive end before moving to offensive tackle his sophomore year. Johnson has starting experience at both right and left tackle spots.

A first-round talent, Johnson is ranked by DraftInsider.net's Tony Pauline as the No. 3 offensive tackle prospect and the No. 16 prospect overall.

The Eagles reportedly worked out Johnson last Friday. If the consensus top two tackles - Luke Joeckel and Eric Fisher - are selected before the Eagles' No. 4 spot another team could move up to get the player who has been considered by many draft experts the last of the elite tackle prospects.
