29. Lane Johnson
The popular offensive tackle is one of Philadelphia’s longest-serving players. However, many fans didn’t think that they would see much more of Johnson after a terrible rookie season. He played in every game for the Eagles but didn’t perform well in 2013. In fact, one news source graded him as the worst first-round rookie from that year’s draft. Then, to make matters worse, he tested positive for PEDs before his sophomore year.
Fortunately for Johnson, he was able to turn his career around and get back on track. He played a key role in the Eagles’ 2016 Super Bowl win. It must have felt good for him to get his hands on a ring after a rough start to his career. Furthermore, it shows that many elite athletes take time to blossom into something brilliant. Johnson definitely proved this point.
