The "anything can happen" narrative pushed before every professional sports draft should be taken with a large grain of salt.

A couple surprises might occur; a guy may go later than slated by the mock-arazzi; but generally, most things shake out more or less on par with general expectations.

Unless Chip Kelly is involved, that is. If the Philadelphia Eagles head coach is making decisions, anything is possible.

In this spirit, Mike Trout reached out to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Thursday night. The Los Angeles Angels outfielder wanted to know if Schefter thought Kelly would go full Chip Kelly and trade up to add another Oregon Duck—quarterback Marcus Mariota—to his crew.

In any other sport, this is a joke. But with the NFL possessing a troll-chieftain in its ranks, you can't rule anything out.

Dan is on Twitter. All draft all night, baby.
