INDIANAPOLIS - The media portion of the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine is over. From an Eagles perspective, what did we learn? If you're chasing the Marcus Mariota dream - I don't think it's happening, but, due diligence - the positive vibes Jameis Winston engendered in Indy, in interviews with teams and with reporters, certainly kept alive the possibility that Winston will be the No. 1 overall pick and Mariota could somehow slide down the list...

INDIANAPOLIS - Eric Kendricks has a tiny scar on his left cheek. He can't specifically remember the flying object that caused the gash that left the scar. But he definitely knows who was responsible. His older brother Mychal. "I think it was a rock," he said. "It definitely was something that was thrown. " The Kendricks brothers were born 17 months apart and spent a good portion of their childhood and adolescence doing what brothers close in age do - fighting and competing and destroying pretty much everything in their path.

INDIANAPOLIS - If Marcus Mariota does not reunite with Chip Kelly in Philadelphia, he'll likely play in an offense that is different from what he experienced at Oregon. That team might even huddle. This is fine with Mariota, who sounds as if he does not want to be considered a system quarterback. "It will be an adjustment I'll be able to handle," Mariota said Thursday at the NFL scouting combine. "Learning as much as I can, learning how my drops time up with the route concepts and how my feet are going to help me go through my progressions: All this stuff is little things that I can continue to work on that will help my adjustment.

INDIANAPOLIS - Chip Kelly once preferred Brett Hundley to Marcus Mariota. But Hundley chose UCLA and Kelly settled on Mariota, and somewhere over the next three years Oregon proved to get the better college quarterback. Mariota is also expected to be the better NFL prospect and likely out of reach for Kelly and the Eagles, who have the 20th overall selection in the first round of the NFL draft. But Hundley should be available when the Eagles pick, and possibly in the second or third round, as well.

INDIANAPOLIS - With the Super Bowl two weeks in the rearview mirror, the NFL's attention shifts to its annual scouting combine, bringing 323 prospects along with coaches, evaluators, and doctors from 32 NFL teams to Indianapolis this week. Players began arriving Tuesday. On-field testing begins Friday. The first three days for each positional group are designated for medical examinations, measurements, psychological testing, team interviews, and media interviews. Testing comes on the final day. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, which will run from April 30 to May 2. They are expected to take a quarterback, with the choice likely between Florida State's Jameis Winston and Oregon's Marcus Mariota.

MIKE MAYOCK might not be everyone's cup of tea, but then, not everyone likes strong tea. His blunt, reactive, honest style has served him well as an analyst on college and pro football broadcasts for more than 20 years, but charismatic color men are all over these days. What sets Mayock apart is he has grown to be the most credible of the NFL draft analysts. He is less interested in promoting the Mike Mayock Brand and Hairstyle than with giving complete and informed impressions.

The proposed deal between the NFL and its retired players addressing long-term effects of repeated concussions is inching closer to final approval, as lawyers amended their settlement proposal to include five changes requested by a federal judge. The revisions would require the league to remove a $75 million cap to pay for baseline neurological testing for all eligible retirees, extend the cutoff date for the families of deceased players to obtain diagnoses for certain conditions, and grant some credit to players who spent time in development leagues like NFL Europe.

The Eagles' brain trust arrives in Indianapolis this week for the annual NFL scouting combine, where it will take a close look at potential prospects for the No. 20 overall pick - at least if it cannot or does not move up in the draft to acquire Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota. The Eagles have pressing needs in the secondary, where they must upgrade both cornerback and safety. The depth chart will still likely change after free agency, but NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock believes the Eagles could find that their needs and draft slot align in the first round.
