Chip Kelly sure does love his pro days. After spending Monday at Louisville to see some of the 2014 NFL Draft top prospects up close and in person, Kelly was spotted on Tuesday at the Florida State University pro day. Kelly was there for an especially good reason. The FSU Seminoles were the number one ranked team in college football last season. They achieved a 14-0 record in regular season play and went on to beat the Auburn Tigers in the BCS national championship game. And the reason behind the Seminoles' success was greatly due to the amount of talent on their team. A number of these talented players will be entering the 2014 NFL Draft. Here are the names of interest:
WR Kelvin Benjamin - Benjamin ranks as one of the best receivers in this year's talented WR class. He's currently tied for 5th on Mike Mayock's top 5 receivers list. The Eagles could be in the market for a WR regardless of what happens with DeSean Jackson. Benjamin has great size but didn't show the best athleticism at the 2014 NFL Combine. Check out his spider graph:
DT Timmy Jernigan - One of the top rated DTs to enter the draft. The Eagles could use some DL depth but they seem to like the youth and potential they have there.
DB Terrence Brooks - The Eagles could still look to add a safety in the draft. CBS lists Brooks as a second or third round talent.
DB LaMarcus Joyner - Joyner doesn't have the best size (5-8, 190) and he didn't have a stellar showing at the combine. But there's no denying the guy made plays for FSU's defense. Joyner is Mayock's fifth rated safety.
LB Telvin Smith - Some have suggested Smith doesn't have the adequate size to play linebacker in the NFL and should transition to the safety position. But Smith has maintained he wants to be a linebacker and doesn't want to switch.
LB Christian Jones - The Eagles need a future answer at inside linebacker to take over for DeMeco Ryans someday. Jones could be a guy they like. He has good size and athleticism. The versatility to line up at both ILB and OLB will be appealing.
Chip Kelly watching these linebackers very closely. Peeks his head up every time Christian Jones is running drills.— Dustin Tackett (@dtackett_) March 18, 2014
Some players who might not be drafted but could be late round picks or undrafted free agents of interest: FB Chad Abram, DB Gerald Demps, LS Phillip Doumar, OL Jacob Fehrenkrug, DL Demonte McAllister, DL Jacobbi McDaniel, TE Shane Broxsie, DE Dan Hicks, OL Jonathan Wallace.
