Per Waltfootball, Giants scout overherad saying "thats my LT" about L.Johnson..
Walt football mocked Lane Johnson to us at pick 20 in todays Mock and at the end of his reasonings why, he said it helps matters that a GIANTS scout was recently overheard saying "Thats my LT" referring to the athletic pass blocker from Oklahoma..
Obviously i don't know how much truth there is to this, and could mean nothing, but in draft threads, anything GIANTS goes....
Heres the Pick and stuff walt wrote...
New York Giants: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
The offensive tackle position is a mess for the Giants. Will Beatty and Sean Locklear are both free agents, while David Diehl has transformed into a human turnstile recently. This is an area that desperately needs to be addressed to keep Eli Manning from getting too banged up as he advances into his 30s.
Lane Johnson had a terrific Senior Bowl and is now in top-20 consideration. Sealing the deal here is that a Giants scout was recently overheard saying, "that's my left tackle."
