Is Marcus Mariota Chip Kelly’s Andrew Luck?

There have been hundreds of rumors floating around about Eagles trading up to draft Marcus Mariota. Even though it might cost a lot of picks to pull off the deal, former Bears wide out Curtis Conway feels Kelly thinks it is worth it.

“For Chip Kelly, Marcus Mariota is Andrew Luck for him,” Conway said Monday on NFL Network’s “Path to the Draft.” “The thing I love about Marcus playing for Chip is, when you look at those quarterbacks — Nick Foles, Mark Sanchez — they had immediate success when they stepped into that offense. In a quarterback-driven league … you need a quarterback to win. Chip needs this type of quarterback to win in this league.”

This is a quarterback league and Kelly does know what he needs from his QB to make the system work. The Eagles might want to make this trade, especially if Kelly feels Mariota is his Luck.
