Oklahoma OT Lane Johnson is rising up draft boards all over NFL offices. The NFL Combines start on February 20th and people are expecting Johnson to keep rising up the draft.
One of the reasons people expect him to rise up the draft is because of his incredible athleticism. He will be able to showcase that in the Combines.
Today, the 6-foot-7, 305 pound beast ran a 40-yard dash and clocked in at 4.67 secs! 4.67 FREAKING SECS!
Compare that 40-time against our 1st round draft pick from last season, Melvin Ingram. Ingram measured in a 6-foot-1, 264 pounds and ran the 40 in 4.66 seconds.
6 inches taller and 40 pounds heavier and runs about the same speed. That is straight cra-cra!
Expect him to get a lot of attention and love at the combines. Three offensive tackles could be selected within the first 11 picks. Some team may try to push their way in front of the Chargers in the draft to try and select one of the tackles.
Underwear Olympics (the combines) start in a couple of weeks. Watch the hype on players like Johnson build.
