How far would Marcus Mariota need to fall to have Eagles move up?

We already know that Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly loves his former gunslinger Marcus Mariota, but how far would he have to fall before Chip began making calls?

I feel Chip is going to make a run for Mariota, he is not a good liar, and after watching the Combine when NFL Network caught Kelly staring at the monitors at a clip for Mariota, I knew he was in love. It was like watching a kid in middle school staring at the hot girl in class.  Well, one analyst feels if Mariota falls to pick 9 the Eagles will be on the phone.

On that Thursday night, if they get to about No. 9 and Marcus Mariota has not been selected, then I believe Chip Kelly is going to make a phone call,” analyst Brian Baldinger said about the Philadelphia Eagles drafting another Oregon player. “I believe he calls (the Rams’) Jeff Fisher and Les Snead and says ‘We want your pick (at No. 10).'”

So how far does he have to fall before they call?
