Jake Fisher, T, Oregon: Obviously the Oregon connection cannot be overlooked and he would represent good value in the second round. The problem could be that Fisher is strictly a tackle, a finesse tackle at that. All the scouting reports on him are that he needs to get stronger. So can he move inside to guard?

With Nelson Agholor in his 1st-round pocket, Chip Kelly will look for a defensive back and an offensive lineman in tonight’s 2nd and 3rd rounds of the NFL draft.

And Kelly might move up for a player, as the Eagles did last year when they got wide receiver Jordan Matthews, who played very well in his rookie season.

Here are some second-round possibilities, courtesy of NJ.com’s Mark Eckel:

T.J. Clemmings, OL, Pitt: They would likely have to move up to get him, but who knows he may fall. The Teaneck native is a natural right tackle at 6-4 1/2, 310, but has the athleticism Kelly likes to start his career inside at guard. This would be a real nice pick.

P.J. Williams, DB, Florida State: Most look at Williams, 6-0, 192, as a cornerback, but because he’s knot a burner there are some teams who feel he could play right away at safety. For the Eagles he might be able to come in and start.

Eric Rowe, DB, Utah: Rowe, 6-1, 204, is a little bigger than Williams and has the same good ball skills and coverage skills. What might scare some teams off is he scored an 11 on Wonderlic the first time he took it. He took it again, however, and scored a 23.

And in the third round. . .

Quinten Rollins, DB, Miami (Ohio): Intriguing prospect who played basketball until last year, but opened scout’s eyes with his ball skills, awareness and ability to come up and make a hit.

Ty Sambrailo, OL, Colorado State: Played every line position, except center, in college. The Eagles love that kind of versatility. The 6-6 311-pounder would likely begin his career at guard and then eventually move outside to tackle if need be.

Corey Robinson, OL, South Carolina: Big man, 6-6, 321, began his career on defense but moved to the offensive line. Scored the highest of any linemen on the Wonderlic with a 40.
