Matt Barkley was taken by the Eagles in the fourth round, but was projected as more of a late first-round or second-round guy. He was also rated by NFLDraftZone.com as the second-best quarterback in the NFL Draft. Except he went much later than that, as the Eagles drafted him with the first pick of the fourth round (98th overall). Barkley could have come out of school after his...
Before the Eagles hired Chip Kelly away from Oregon, they had also interviewed Penn State coach Bill O’Brien and Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly and had planned to sit down with former Syracuse coach Doug Marrone.

One year ago, Matt Barkley probably would have been inking a multi-year deal worth millions more than the 4-year deal he signed with the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday. Many expected him to be not only a first-round pick, but to challenge Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III as the first QB taken in the NFL Draft.
