I wasn't kidding around when I said Chip Kelly loves pro days. On Monday, Kelly was seen at the Louisville pro day. Kelly traveled down to Florida State on Tuesday to attend their pro day. The latest Kelly spotting took place at the Virginia Tech pro day on Wednesday. VT has a few players that could be of interest to the Eagles. Here are the two names that stand out the most:
CB Kyle Fuller
Fuller is a player who BGN has recently reviewed in our draft profile series. He's also a player who has drawn some interest from the Eagles. According to Tony Pauline, Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis was "all over" Fuller at VT's pro day. Pauline goes on to say, "Davis made a point of introducing Fuller to the [Eagles'] head coach, Chip Kelly."
The Eagles could certainly use a long-term answer at cornerback and Fuller has the size and athleticism the Eagles like in their defensive backs.
QB Logan Thomas
Thomas is far from anything close to resembling a polished passer, but there's no denying his special athleticism. Look at these spider graphs. The first measures Thomas against other quarterbacks (comparisons: Cam Newton, E.J. Manuel). The second measures him up against other tight ends (comparisons: Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski).
