Detroit Lions draft preview OT Lane Johnson
Went back and checked out the Texas, Texas A&M and Senior Bowl games of Lane Johnson OT Oklahoma.
Strengths: supreme athlete. Can pass block at an elite level. Can extend arms and lock out rushers. Great at finding people to block on the second level. Gave nothing to Moore of A&M. Handled Hunt and Buchanan in the Senior Bowl.
Weakness: maybe drive blocking but was effective in the goal line package.
Bottom line: Real prospect at Left Tackle. I rank him 2nd behind Fisher at Tackle and has value in the top 10-12. Much better player than Riley Reiff in his draft process.
