2022 NFL Draft results: Philadelphia Eagles select Kyron Johnson – Eagles Wire

Kyron Johnson (6-0, 235) flashed some at the Senior Bowl. Has good speed. Played some edge in college. Sounds like a SAM candidate. Ran a sub-4.5 in the 40. https://t.co/lafgmIxuph

The Eagles added another heat-seeking missile to the roster, drafting former Kansas linebacker Kyron Johnson in the sixth round of the 2022 NFL draft.
Philadelphia traded up from the No. 188 overall pick in the sixth round to No. 181 overall, selecting Johnson with the pick. In making the move up, the Eagles parted ways with the No. 188 pick (sixth round) and its seventh-round pick (No. 237 overall) to the Lions.
An electric athlete that runs a sub-4.4, 40-yard dash, Johnson is a SAM linebacker that’ll find a hybrid role in Jonathan Gannon’s defense and will become a special teams ace.
Johnson becomes the second linebacker drafted, joining Nakobe Dean.
