There was a period late Monday morning where Twitter was dominated by Philadelphia Eagles beat writers expressing wide-eyed wonder at new head coach Chip Kelly’s practice innovations.

When the Philadelphia Eagles traded up in the fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft to take quarterback Matt Barkley, reports emerged that they did so because the Kansas City Chiefs were set to take the former USC standout. Chiefs coach Andy Reid knows how rumors like that get started, and he finds them laughable.
THE EAGLES’ 2013 draft seems to be generating high marks, as meaningless a notion as that might be before any of the prospects has even been measured for a midnight-green helmet.
