Lane Johnson: Chip Kelly focused too much on sports science, not enough on football
Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson was the first draft pick of the Chip Kelly era, but Johnson wasn’t thrilled with what he saw of Kelly.
Johnson said that although Kelly’s obsession with sports science had some value, he felt as if Kelly focused more on sports science than on football.
We major in sports science, which is good thing 鈥?we still do it here. But I think we kind of went overboard with that. I think a good way to put it is we majored in the minors instead of focusing on some of the main points that we needed to, Johnson said on Steve Austin’s podcast, via Philly.com.

Game Sven Baertschi Jersey He’s taking me under his wing and helped me out when I need him to, answering every question I have. Meeting with me whenever I need him to. Going over film. He’s been awesome.
At Notre Dame, McGlinchey was coached by Brian Kelly, who coached Staley at Central Michigan. Many of Kelly’s assistants also coached with Kelly at Central Michigan in 2004-06.
I’ve studied [Staley] for a long time on top of admiring him from afar, McGlinchey said. It’s going to be an unbelievable opportunity to play across from Joe.
Mailata may be the most unique project in any camp this year, but there are others: defensive linemen moving to the offensive line (Kahlil McKenzie of the Chiefs), obscure D-II running backs trying to stick as punt returners (Trenton Cannon of the Jets), king-sized wide receivers learning to play tight end (Jordan Thomas of the Texans) and even another rugby player (England’s Christian Scotland-Williamson) trying to make the Steelers as a tight end.
