The Eagles are trying to pull of the ultimate smokescreen.
Eagles GM Howie Roseman told Philadelphia’s WIP-FM on Wednesday that the team won’t rule out selecting Manziel if he’s on the board at 22 when the Eagles pick.
“We’re going to stick to our board on (possibly drafting Manziel),” Roseman told Philadelphia’s WIP-FM on Wednesday. “I think that for us, it all depends on the grade. I think that when Coach (Chip Kelly) was talking about (Manziel), he was talking about recruiting, and there’s a lot of players in this draft, when we get in the draft room, that Coach is excited about.”
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has been smitten with Manziel since the former Heisman winner chose Texas A&M over Oregon three years ago.
