If you were watching The MNF game (of course you were, what else would you be doing?!), you might have noticed that Eagles 1s round pick Lane Johnson had a good debut. At the very least, he didn’t stand out to you- which is what you’d like from a rookie offensive lineman.

According to the guys over at Pro Football Focus, Johnson had a great night. He graded out +3.1 overall, which was the 2nd highest for a 1st round rookie behind only Carolina’s Star Lotulelei. He performed extremely well in run blocking, where he graded out at +4.7. This was the highest for any tackle in the league.
