Jake Flannigan

Lane Johnson (OT), Oklahoma

6-6 | 303 lbs.

Drafted:

1st Round - No. 4 overall to the Philadelphia Eagles 

Strengths:

It’s not often that an offensive lineman is considered one of the best athletes in the draft, but Johnson’s rare combination of size, speed and strength is truly remarkable. From foot quickness to sustaining blocks, the former high school quarterback turned tight end/defensive end has become one of the most intriguing offensive lineman prospects in years.

Weaknesses:

Not quite as strong as some of the other players at his position, but continues to improve overall strength. Only two years of playing experience on the offensive line could suggest Johnson has more to prove, but it could also mean his ceiling is sky-high.
