University of Arizona quarterback Matt Scott worked out for pro scouts Thursday during the school's Pro Day, and the Eagles were not in attendance. And why would they be? They just signed former Tulsa quarterback G.J. Kinne - their fifth passer - earlier in the week. But that doesn't mean Chip Kelly and the Birds aren't interested in Nick Foles' successor at Arizona. According to Daniel Berk of the Arizona Daily Star in Tucson, the Eagles will be the first team to meet with Scott. That meeting is scheduled for Monday. Berk also tweeted that Scott will work out for the Eagles later this month. Scott also said that one of the teams that he has heard from the most is the Eagles. Considering Kelly coached in the same conference - the Pac-12 - maybe there is real interest here and it is not just "due diligence." It would be hard to imagine Kelly was impressed when they faced off last season, however, since Scott threw for three interceptions and no touchdowns as the Ducks beat the Wildcats 49-0. Most outlets, including CBS, project Scott to be a fifth-round pick. ESPN's Todd McShay thinks Scott is one of the best read-option quarterbacks in the draft, behind Florida State's E.J. Manuel and Zac Dysert of Miami (Ohio).
