Lane Johnson has established himself as one of the best offensive linemen in the NFL.
He was on the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl-winning team in 2017-18, and is still a part of their team, helping facilitate a top-tier offensive line.
Johnson has seen a lot of elite pass rushers throughout his nine NFL seasons, having to protect his quarterback against them.
In a recent appearance on Richard Sherman’s podcast, ‘The Volume,’ Johnson detailed the four best pass-rushers in the NFL.
Johnson named Myles Garrett, Maxx Crosby, T.J. Watt, and Micah Parsons as his top four.

Each of these players is well-known across the league for their defensive prowess.
Garrett has been selected to four career Pro Bowls and has been selected as a first-team All-Pro on two separate occasions.
A similar story can be said about Watt, Parsons, and Crosby, who have each racked up a series of accolades.
As each of these players will look to continue their upward trend in the league, players like Johnson will work to keep them away from their respective quarterbacks.
However, as good as these defensive players are, Johnson is equally good at his position.
Johnson didn’t allow a quarterback hit in 2022, let alone a sack.
The Eagles had a lot of success last year, and Johnson was a massive part of that.
Will he and the rest of the offensive line be able to repeat their success of 2022?
The NFC was dominated by the Eagles last season, a trend that they’d like to continue.NEXT: Eagles WR Finishes Race Tied For Fourth-Fastest In The World
