The Philadelphia Eagles have picked offensive tackle Lane Johnson from Oklahoma in the 1st round of the 2013 NFL draft.  The Birds had the 4th pick in the 1st year of the Chip Kelly regime.

Johnson is 6-6, 303 pounds and can make a 360 dunk. He ran a 4.74 forty, posted a 34-inch vertical leap and did 28 reps on the bench press at the NFL combine.

Philly has Jason Peters at left tackle, so Johnson could start at right tackle.
