Eagles Draft News: Ron Jaworski Thinks Chip Kelly Should "Mortgage" Future For Marcus Mariota

The Philadelphia Eagles and head coach Chip Kelly are in a unique position heading into the 2015 NFL Draft, with plenty of NFL pundits half-expecting for the team's aggressive front office to trade up the draft board in order to land 2014 Heisman Trophy winner (and former Kelly charge) Marcus Mariota.

Former Eagles QB and current Philadelphia Soul owner Ron Jaworski thinks Kelly and the Eagles' brass should do just that, taking a major risk in hopes of reaping major rewards.

“You have to mortgage your future,” Jaworski said Friday on Philly Sports Talk, via CSN Philly. “I know he (Kelly) says he’s not going to, but what mortgage means is you get something now and you pay later.”

“If I’m Chip Kelly,” Jaworski added later in the show, “then I would try everything I can (to move up) because that’s the guy you love and believe in.”

The Eagles currently have the #20 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, but have been rumored to be willing to slide up as far as #3 (Jacksonville Jaguars) in hopes of securing Mariota.
