Nick Saban’s attempted leap from college to the NFL was largely unsuccessfully because of a move the Miami Dolphins didn’t make, and Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly didn’t want to follow the same path.

Kenjon Barner, RB, age 25, 5-9, 195, 6th round pick out of Oregon by Carolina in 2013.
