I'm starting to like Lane Johnson a lot.

He's quick footed, very technically refined and uses his arms very well. He's tall at 6'6" and certainly has the frame to put on additional weight, which could be considered the weakness of his game (he's 302, roughly the same weight Matt Kalil came in at last year around this time) as he can have trouble with aggressive bull rushers.
here's a picture for those of you who can't read
Oklahoma moved him back and forth from LT and RT over the course of single games while he was there so his experience at both positions also gives him some additional value though he primarily played LT.
He's been shooting up draft boards and he may be my horse in this race in the coming months.

I just think he's more of a "potential" player than a "safe" pick. If it is between him and a better all around player when we select, it will be the BPA.

Here's the story about the 40: http://boltbeat.com/...ard-dash-today/
Here's actual video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBVigIzyfxs&sns=tw (He runs between the 1:38-1:47 mark and the 4:20-4:27 mark)
He also recently posted a 37-inch vertical

Still need a guard though, interior play was alot worse than tackle play
We do need a guard but it is alot easier and cheaper to get a good guard in FA than a LT. I view replacements for Gross and Steve Smith as high priority since A)we have options for neither on the roster and starting LT's and #1 WR's are expensive and rare in FA. IMO DT, OG, LB and Safety are easier to find cheap starters at in FA so high draft picks should be used elsewhere unless it's a special talent. my 2 cents

(not that a 300+ lb man running a 4.6 40 isn't impressive from a strictly athletic stand point)
