With Johnny Manziel on the board, Chip Kelly had a chance to make good on missing out on landing the future Heisman-Trophy winner in his days at Oregon. While we all will likely fantasize about what could have been with Manziel for years to come, especially if Nick Foles isn’t able to duplicate his magical sophomore season, the Eagles elected to pass on Manziel, and trade their pick to the Browns, who have selected Johnny Manziel.
I happened to call this trade 45 minutes ago.
The Eagles could seriously trade down to 26 for the Browns and still get a safety or a wide out.

The Eagles have landed another third-round pick, which is a GREAT move.
