Watch: Eagles lineman Lane Johnson is an NBA-quality dunker

Thursday March 31st, 2016

Eagles player and Oklahoma alum Lane Johnson is excited that the Sooners are in the Final Four, so he decided to throw down a dunk after his workout on Wednesday.

Here’s the catch: Johnson is an offensive tackle, listed on the Philadelphia roster at 317 pounds. And this was no easy dunk, either.

Johnson played quarterback in junior college before transferring to Oklahoma and the Sooners tried him at tight end and defensive end before he stuck at offensive line. So yeah, he’s pretty athletic.

Amazingly, Johnson did not play high school basketball. That seems like an oversight.
