Ever heard of Oklahoma offensive lineman Lane Johnson? Probably not unless you are some sort of NFL Draft junkie who can’t get enough Mel Kiper and Mike Mayock. Expected to go in the top five of tonight’s draft, it’s highly likely that Johnson’s wife (married in January), Chelsea, is going to be the breakout star of the 2013 Draft.
The key for Chelsea Johnson, a former high jumper at Oklahoma, to become a star tonight will be pick placement. The key is to get on TV in the 8:00 hour. It’s just a fact that the girlfriend/wife that wins draft night has to shine early, which will lead to screengrabs, GIFs, trending on Twitter and ultimately she ends up with modeling gigs like Lauren Tannehill.
It also helps that Chelsea’s father, John, spent five years in the NFL with the Steelers.
