Lane Johnson Works Out For Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles held a private workout with offensive lineman Lane Johnson at an undisclosed location, according to a league source.

Johnson, projected to be a Top 10 or 15 pick, met with the Eagles at the Combine. They were extremely high on him, according to sources. It was there he also showcased the size and athleticism that makes him attractive to new coach Chip Kelly.

The Oklahoma product measured 6-foot-6, 303 pounds with an impressive 35 1/4-inch arm length. His 4.72 time in the 40-yard dash, 34-inch vertical leap and 118-inch broad jump were among the tops for offensive linemen.

Johnson is considered by most the third-best offensive tackle in the draft behind Luke Joeckel and Fisher. Joeckel is expected to visit with the Eagles next week. The most likely scenario for Johnson landing in Philadelphia would be if the Eagles traded out of the No. 4 spot. If the Eagles moved back in the first round there is a distinct possibility that Johnson could be their pick. (
