Sportsbash Friday: Breaking Down Lane Johnson at No. 4 Spot, Sal Pal Says Eagles Got Duped
The Sports Bash ON DEMAND gives you the chance to go back and hear what you missed. Its the Sports Bash with Mike Gill and Todd Ranck.
On today's show Mike Gill and Todd Ranck were joined by our Eagles Insider Ryan Messick. The three of them break down the Eagles draft pick last night of Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma and preview what the Eagles are looking to do tonight and tomorrow with the rest of their draft picks.
Sal Paolantonio joined the show at 3:30 with a report from Jets camp and had an interesting take on what they did with taking Dee Milliner with their first round and how the Patriots have already won two games without even putting on shoulder pads.
We caught up with Kevin Parker, Lane Johnson's high school coach in both football and basketball. Johnson still works out in Groveton, TX and speaks to their high school football team whenever he's in town.
We also played the Lane Johnson press conference at 5:00 where he met the Philadelphia media for the first time.
called in LIVE from New York Jets camp and talked with Mike & Todd about the Eagles 'getting duped' at the fourth overall selection in the draft last night. Sal Pal said that the Eagles probably panicked last night after the Dolphins leapfrogged them to No. 3 and selected Dion Jordan. "The Eagles should have gotten out of there after the Dolphins took Jordan and selected a defensive player," Sal Pal said. Sal Pal is also reporting that the Jets are looking to leapfrog the Eagles and take Geno Smith in the second round.
The Eagles took Lane Johnson with the fourth overall pick and we were able to get his former high school coach on the phone from Groveton High School in Groveton,TX. Parker coached Johnson in both football and basketball at Groveton and said that when he was a QB at Groveton, he just grew out of the position and put on almost 40 pounds after he graduated from there. Parker also said that his personality will fit in to the Eagles locker room and that he doesn't have the 'ego' as some players do in the NFL.
