With the #4 pick in the NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles have selected offensive tackle Lane Johnson out of Oklahoma.

A team that definitely needs help on their offensive line. A man who is in excellent shape, will give solid protection for Michael Vick or Nick Foles, whoever is under center.

A young prospect who they could swap between left and right tackle, will give the offensive line coach in Philadelphia options if things don’t seem to work out.

Lane Johnson is the 3rd offensive tackle to be taken early on in this draft.

Detroit Lions are now on the clock.
