In the NFL's offseason of uncertainty, the draft beginning Thursday is no different. Quarterback Cam Newton, the draft's biggest name and widely expected to be the first player taken Thursday night at Radio City Music Hall, has been the subject of intense debate: Do his talent and charisma outweigh concerns about his readiness and character? His standing atop most mock drafts fits in a year full of questions. At quarterback, where a top pick can reverse a team's fortunes or drive it deeper into the mire, analysts are predicting a rush of activity.

The sports draft, devised 79 years ago in Philadelphia because Bert Bell knew his Eagles couldn't otherwise compete, is a curious institution. Without one, wealthy teams such as the 1927-1964 New York Yankees can dominate. But with one, shrewdly run franchises such as the 1957-69 Boston Celtics can do the same. Though its worst-goes-first structure is meant to level the playing field, the system, as tank-ful 76ers fans understand, can still be manipulated. To preserve parity and integrity, leagues have tinkered constantly with their drafts.

Penn State coach James Franklin says his program does its best to provide the information his players need while trying to make the decision on whether to leave college with football eligibility remaining to enter the NFL draft. But he also has a "general rule": "You should never come out early unless you're going to be a first-round draft choice," he said. The Nittany Lions had three players come out early, and two of them - offensive tackle Donovan Smith and tight end Jesse James - were taken, Smith in the second round by Tampa Bay, James in the fifth round by Pittsburgh.

TOO MANY unknowns remain to make an informed decision about what is happening to former LSU offensive lineman La'el Collins, who had been considered a likely top-20 pick in last week's NFL draft. If you lean toward innocent until proven guilty, then Collins - right now - is just a collateral victim in a tragedy that has already claimed the life of his pregnant former girlfriend. He might not be involved or have any knowledge concerning the April 24 shooting deaths of 29-year-old Brittney Mills and her unborn child.

THE BIG, HAPPY personnel family Chip Kelly described for us during the NFL draft is now a little smaller. After the draft was over, the Eagles on Sunday dismissed director of college scouting Anthony Patch, director of pro personnel Rick Mueller and Southwest area scout Brad Obee, sources close to the situation confirmed to the Daily News. Patch and Mueller, especially, were tied to the regime of former general manager Howie Roseman, whose personnel say ended in January. They were Roseman's top personnel advisers, along with Ed Marynowitz, who now runs personnel and will hire his own team.

IT IS STILL to be determined whether Chip Kelly is a genius, but at least after this weekend's NFL draft we can say that he is not a mad scientist. For a mad scientist, the vision is all that matters. The consequences of what it might cost in the attempt to achieve it become irrelevant. Mad scientists are reckless. There is little that is comforting about their experimentation. Success is due to random luck, not well-conceived design. Failure is just as likely. Mad scientists are unreliable.

Tyler Kroft had a stellar season at tight end for Rutgers in 2013, starting in all 12 games and making 43 receptions for 573 yards and four touchdowns. His numbers dropped significantly last fall, largely due to the program's switch in offensive coordinators from Ron Prince to Ralph Friedgen. In Friedgen's more run-oriented scheme, he had 24 receptions for 269 yards. That didn't keep the Cincinnati Bengals from selecting the 2011 Downingtown East graduate in the third round of the NFL draft.

NELSON Agholor's middle name is Efamehule. In his native country of Nigeria, it means "may my name not be forgotten. " So far, he has done a very good job of making sure that doesn't happen. He was one of the top high school running backs in the country at Berkeley Prep in Tampa, rushing for nearly 2,000 yards as a senior. Moved on to USC, where he was converted to a wide receiver and started 30 games in three seasons. Was a team captain as a junior last season and caught 104 passes, the third most in school history.

Chip Kelly started the second day of the NFL draft with his focus on defensive back Eric Rowe. After Byron Jones went in the first round on Thursday, Rowe was the player they targeted for one of their biggest needs on Friday. Kelly waited through the beginning of the second round. With the Eagles not selecting until the No. 52 overall pick, he did not want to wait any longer. The Eagles traded with the Miami Dolphins to select Rowe at No. 47, surrendering both their fifth-round picks to move up five spots in the second round.
