Giorgos Kassakos’ Prediction:

Marcus Mariota, Quarterback, Oregon

I don’t know what the Philadelphia Eagles will have to give up for the talented signal caller but unless it involved trading the Linc, I think it’s happening. Bradford has an injury-checkered past, has only one year left on his deal and costs around $12 million this season. If Kelly does believe that durability is the best ability, it becomes clear that Bradford is a trade piece first, then a fall back plan if Mariota does not happen. Bradford can bring an extra pick to the Eagles, which can be packaged together with other picks and/or players for a blockbuster trade. The Eagles have the pieces, nobody can stop them from trading up but themselves.
