While Lane Johnson hasn't played LT all that long, his quickness and light feet compare with the best LT's in the NFL. He is tremendously quick off the snap and has a real nasty streak which pro GM's love in an OLmen. His size is everything you could want and his ceiling is actually higher than Joeckel's and Fisher's and both of those guys are in the Joe Thomas mold.
He has everything you could possibly want in a LT, just needs to build up his strength and develop his technique more to become perhaps the primary LT in the NFL.
I doubt he gets out of the top 5 in this year's draft with so many teams needing LT's. Yes, he is raw but dominated every DE at the Senior Bowl and his combine #'s were off the charts.
