04/29/2012 - Dennis Kelly, the 6-8, 333-pound offensive tackle from Purdue who the Eagles selected in the fifth round, was a three-year starter at the Big-10 school, yet wasn't one of the 330-plus prospects invited to the scouting combine in February. Asked how he could have been overlooked, Andy Reid said, "When I put on the tape, I wondered the same thing. (Former Eagles director of player personnel and now Colts general manager) Ryan Grigson was still with us at the time. He had played at Purdue and was a former offensive lineman there. And I'm going, `OK, this is a good football player right here.' It's just one of those things. You see one or two guys a year go through that (not get invited to the combine)." - The Sports Xchange
