The Philadelphia Eagles selected left tackle Lane Johnson with the No. 4 overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft, the first pick of Chip Kelly's NFL career. If the Miami Dolphins didn't trade up for the No. 3 overall pick, Kelly's pick could have been different, as the former Oregon Ducks head coach "heavily considered" former Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan, according to USA Today.
Kelly and the Eagles considered moving up to thwart the Dolphins, but deemed the price too steep. Philadelphia would have needed to surrender its third-round pick to move up one spot from No. 4 overall to No. 3 overall, according to USA Today, and that price simply was too high for the Eagles' new staff.
"When you start to get getting emotionally involved, and I was very conscious of that, then what do you have to do to move up?" Kelly said. "If you move up to get him, then that means you don't get Bennie Logan because you don't have a third-round pick or you don't get Matt Barkley because you don't have a fourth-round pick. It's the accumulation of putting the whole team together. It's saying, 'What are you willing to sacrifice to get one player?'
Had Miami, who needs a left tackle, traded up for Fisher, it appears likely that Jordan would have traded his Oregon green for Philadelphia green.
