Eagles Able To Get Lane Johnson Fourth Overall

[1]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.
