The report states that new head coach Chip Kelly was joined in West Virginia by general manager Howie Roseman and owner Jeffrey Lurie. Many people are scared of Smith and do not believe that his skill set is worthy of the No. 4 overall pick. He has been linked to the Eagles for much of the off season because of his mobility and Kelly’s preference of having a mobile quarterback. Last week the Eagles signed quarterback G.J. Kinne to a contract that gave the Eagles five quarterbacks, joining Michael Vick , Nick Foles, Dennis Dixon, and Trent Edwards .
Last year at West Virginia, Smith completed 71.2% of his passes (369-for-518) with 42 touchdowns and six interceptions. In three seasons as a starter for the Mountaineers, Smith completed 67.4% of his passes for 11,662 yards, 98 touchdowns, and 21 interceptions. The 6’2” 218 lbs. quarterback ran a 4.59 40 yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine last month in Indianapolis.
