What Would the Eagles Give the Jets for Pick No. 6?

This game of connect the dots is reasonably simple. Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota is arguably the top quarterback in this year's draft. Assuming the Bucs take Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston and the Titans pass on Mariota for somebody like Leonard Williams, he is likely to be available for the Jets at No. 6.

While the Jets need a quarterback, so do the Eagles. Philadelphia head coach Chip Kelly recruited Mariota to Oregon and it's easy to see that his offense would run far better with Mariota at the helm. With Mariota, the Eagles are a playoff team. The Jets, on the other hand, lack the roster depth to make the playoffs even with a new quarterback, especially one who isn't exactly viewed as "pro-ready." This looks to be a match made in heaven.

The main question becomes: If Mariota slips out of the top five, what would the Eagles need to give the Jets to acquire his services?
