08:04 AM ET 04.01 | Very near the top of the draft, Philadelphia will be watched closely as the April 25 event nears. There may be plenty of reasons the Eagles won't draft Geno Smith with the No. 4 overall pick. But Chip Kelly's belief that his offense can thrive without a franchise quarterback suggests that a team with many needs will pass on the West Virginia prospect. Perhaps Kelly views Smith as being worth the investment. ... But if Kelly doesn't -- Smith would have been at best the fourth-best quarterback prospect last year -- then he may see greater value later in the draft. In that case, E.J. Manuel or Matt Scott, two quarterbacks already linked to the Eagles, would make more sense.
