It remains to be seen if the Philadelphia Eagles will have a shot in the 2015 NFL Draft to reunite Chip Kelly with his former quarterback: Marcus Mariota. But it seems very likely that Kelly will have shot to reunite with his other former Ducks quarterback: Bryan Bennett. Oddly enough, however, the Eagles might not be interested in Bennett as a passer.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Eagles scouts reportedly view the Southeastern Louisana prospect as a safety.
"Classic draft misdirection: Eagles scouts telling teams they view SE La QB Bryan Bennett as a safety. (Chip Kelly coached the QB at Oregon)."
As Rapoport hinted, perhaps this is just a case of the Eagles saying they don't really view Bennett as a safety in order to make other teams believe they're not really interested in him. Or, who know, maybe the Eagles genuinely view Bennett as a defensive back.
Bennett is certainly a good athlete, especially for a quarterback. But safety is a different story. Here's a look at how his measurements compare to the safety position, via Mockdraftable:
The Eagles are understandably desperate at safety with no real proven starting option to pair next to Malcolm Jenkins. I don't think they're desperate enough to draft Bennett and convert him to defensive back, though.
