While the Philadelphia Eagles tried to move up to select Marcus Mariota, there was an uncomfortable truth told by Chip Kelly in regards to the franchise's ability to draft a top quarterback.
Instead of Mariota, the Eagles enter 2015 with Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez.
"New England, Pittsburgh, Green Bay -- (Tom] Brady, (Ben) Roethlisberger, (Aaron) Rodgers. It all starts with the quarterback," Kelly said, via CSN Philly. "And then you have to build the roster around that. And we're trying to, and we think Sam's got potential, we think Mark (Sanchez has) potential.
"We've got to build it around it, but when you look at all the winning organizations ... if you want to play with the odds as we want to play, it's got to be with a quarterback situation and then the only way you're going to get a quarterback is you got to be really not very good so you finish in the top 1-2 in the draft. If we're not very good and we finish with the top 1-2 in the draft, I don't think I'm going to be here, so we better find another way to find a quarterback. And that's what we did with Sam."
