According to CSNPhilly.com’s Geoff Mosher, Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel met with Chip Kelly last night in Alabama at the Senior Bowl and the dynamic quarterback described their conversation as “great.”
Manuel, who ran quite a bit of hurry-up and read-option looks with the Seminoles, believes he would be an ideal fit in whatever variation of the Oregon offense Kelly brings with him to Philadelphia.
The 6-5, 240 lb. quarterback told reporters that Kelly heavily recruited the quarterback during his time at Oregon, but he was hesitant to make the move to Eugene from Virginia.
While it’s unknown if and to what extent the Eagles have interest in Manuel, but he certainly possesses the idea physical attributes for Chip Kelly’s offense.
Manuel completed 68 percent of his passes for 3,392 yards and 23 touchdowns during his senior season in Tallahassee. He added 310 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. Here’s a look at the Eagles’ potential draft prospect.
