11:16 AM ET 02.04 | Florida State quarterback and 2013 Senior Bowl MVP E.J. Manuel spoke with the NFL Network at EA Sports' Madden party. Manuel was asked where he wanted to play at the next level and after giving the canned "whoever drafts me" response, Manuel specifically pointed out two teams in the league. First, Manuel singled out the Philaelphia Eagles because of new head coach Chip Kelly's offense. Manuel could excel in Kelly's system with his versatile skillset and he will likely receive some strong consideration from the Eagles in April. As for the other team Manuel mentioned, it was the Kansas City Chiefs, who hold the first-overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The reason for Manuel adding the Chiefs into the conversation is because of head coach Andy Reid's history of developing quarterbacks. If Manuel wants to be successful at the next level, he will need a good mentor and he feels that Reid could be that man. Manuel has been a fast riser early in the draft season, thanks to his impressive performance at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.

Apparently he wants them to trade down to pick him.
