Geno Smith to visit Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday

The Geno Smith tour continues Wednesday, and the Philadelphia Eagles are the destination, a source told NFL.com's Albert Breer. The West Virginia quarterback met with the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday.

The Eagles have the No. 4 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, and Breer noted the teams in the top five are doing their homework on an array of options. All might look to move down without any clear-cut, can't-miss prospects in this draft.

The Eagles and new coach Chip Kelly already have quarterbacks Michael Vick, Nick Foles and Dennis Dixon in the fold. Dixon played for Kelly in Oregon and was signed in February. G.J. Kinne and Trent Edwards also are on the roster, though they aren't in the mix to win the starting job.

If the Eagles draft Smith, either Foles or Dixon would be out the door, with Foles having the most trade value and least athleticism of the three. That was a valued element in Kelly's system at Oregon. The Eagles already held a private workout for Smith in Morgantown, W.Va.

Kelly hasn't tipped his hand on his quarterback plans, and Smith has his deficiencies, but the organization has to prepare for all scenarios.
