This video segment about Johnny Manziel's pro day is obviously a couple of days old but I just saw it for the first time this morning and found part of it interesting. In it, Johnny Football talks a little bit about his relationship with Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly from the time years ago when Kelly attempted to recruit Manziel to play at Oregon.
All pretty standard stuff, but then the focus turns to Kelly a bit and why he attends so many pro days even when the likelihood of some of the guys like Manziel being around when the Eagles draft is so low.
"I think when you can get [the players] back on their campus and in their environment you can get a better understanding of what they're like as a player and a better feel for who they are," Kelly said.
"So when you're making your decisions, you're making educated decisions. Not just going 'what about this guy?' I don't know, I've never met him. Tough for me to weigh in and say 'we've got to jump in and draft this guy.' Based on what? I watched six games and somebody in a report said he was a good kid? I'd rather be more hands on."
Gather as much information as possible. Sounds a little Hinkie.
Also, Mike Evans... drool.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Karekin Brooks rushed for 268 yards with three touchdowns on 29 carries and Pennsylvania outlasted Lehigh 65-47 on Saturday in the 60th meeting between the defending champions of the Patriot and Ivy leagues.
Brooks became the 12th Quaker to rush for 200-plus yards in a game and moved into second on Penn's single-game rushing record, behind Terrance Stokes' 272 yards against Princeton in 1993. Brooks also threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Ryslik early in the fourth quarter, which made it 56-35.
Penn (2-0) scored consecutive touchdowns 1-minute, 9 seconds apart late in the second quarter to establish a two-touchdown lead it maintained during a second half that saw the teams trade scores on virtually every possession.
Will Fischer-Colbrie finished 13 of 20 for 235 yards and three touchdowns, connecting with Christian Pearson on a 43-yard scoring strike, Logan Sharp from 26 yards and Nicholas Bokun late in the fourth from 21 yards out.
Lehigh (0-4) was led by Brad Mayes, who went 26 of 40 for 444 yards with four touchdowns, but also suffered two interceptions.
