Lane Johnson can talk the talk because he walks the walk, each and every Sunday for the Philadelphia Eagles. The Birds right tackle has been recognized nationally and now he’s being held in high regard as one of the best at his position.

After allowing four sacks to Philadelphia’s opposing defenses to start the season, the Eagles star didn’t give up a sack from week 6 of the regular season through the Eagles divisional-round loss to the Saints to end their playoff run.
