Eagles Able To Get Lane Johnson Fourth Overall

The Eagles were able to get their tackle, and they?didn't?have to trade up to do it, taking Oklahoma?s?Lane Johnson?fourth overall.

With the Dolphins trading up a spot in front of them to get Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan with the third pick, the way was clear for the Eagles to get their needed pass-protector.

The Dolphins likely thought new Eagles coach Chip Kelly was going to reunite with his pass-rusher, but the Eagles had to have someone to keep Michael Vick (or Nick Foles) on his feet.
