Eagles take Oklahoma tackle Lane Johnson with top pick

"I think he is ready, but he is raw," Chip Kelly said. "We look as raw as a positive not a negative. If he's doing what he's doing right now, and he's only played like two years on the offensive line . . . We felt that his ceiling is probably the highest."

One of Lane Johnson's most challenging assignments during his rookie season as a Philadelphia Eagles tackle will be to block New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.

Most people realized one thing when Lane Johnson appeared on the stage at the NFL Draft at Radio City Musical Hall on Thursday night and opened his mouth: dude has a killer accent. Born in Groveton, Texas, the Philadelphia Eagles newest draft pick has been known to tussle with some bears. But like any intelligent human, he's not gonna mess with a BIG bear.
