Earlier on Wednesday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that a run on offensive tackles in the 2013 NFL Draft could start early that would result in the top three prospects at that position being off the board before the No. 7 pick.

One of those players is Oklahoma’s Lane Johnson, who thinks that it is very possible he could be drafted within the first five picks.

Johnson stated that he believes he’s a good fit for the Philadelphia Eagles and that he thinks there is a good chance they could select him with their first-round pick.

It’s a good possibility,” Johnson told Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “What they’re going to do offensively really fits what I excel at — up-tempo, zone offense. But you never know what’s going to happen come draft day.”

Johnson is incredibly athletic for his size, 6-foot-6, 304-pounds, and he makes a good point about his fit in Chip Kelly’s system.

If the report of a run on tackles beginning early is true, it isn’t out of the question that Johnson could be targeted with a top five pick.
