Philadelphia Eagles Made the Right Move With Lane Johnson
After finishing with a disappointing 4-12 record last season, the Philadelphia Eagles hope to bounce back next year and if the 2013 NFL Draft is any indication of what to expect–there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be contenders in the NFC East. The Eagles came up big with numerous key players, but the argument can be made that no player may make a bigger impact as a rookie than Lane Johnson.
Philadelphia selected Johnson with the fourth pick in the first round after weighing out numerous options and as crazy as it sounds–this move should pay off big time for the team next season. When looking back at the last two seasons, it’s no secret the Eagles have struggled big time when it comes to protecting their offensive line and the last thing they want to see happen is Michael Vick–assuming he’s the starter–get hurt because of lack of protection.
When it comes to Johnson–he’s a player that seems to have the potential to make an impact right away as a rookie.
There was a reason why Johnson was considered one of the top offensive lineman in this year’s class and Philadelphia should consider themselves lucky to see him available at No. 4. The potential is certainly there for Johnson and if he can live up to the hype as a rookie–there’s no reason why the Eagles shouldn’t be able to bounce back and see a major improvement on the offensive line.
