PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles have selected Oklahoma offensive tackle Lane Johnson with the No. 4 overall pick in new head coach Chip Kelly's first NFL draft.

Johnson, 6-foot-6 and 303 pounds, was the third tackle drafted among the first four picks Thursday night. Johnson was a quarterback in high school and went to Oklahoma as a tight end.

He gives the Eagles a cornerstone anchor on a line that was decimated by injuries last season. Four of the five starters went down with injuries.

The Eagles are coming off a 4-12 season and fired coach Andy Reid after 14 seasons.
