Nick Boyle is one of the best football players to ever suit up at the University of Delaware.

He has the most catches in school history for a tight end and now he hopes to be a catch in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Boyle is projected to be a mid to late round pick.

"I'm excited but kinda scared because it's unpredictable from the sense that you don't know what team wants you. You could talk to a team 20 times and they never pick you and a team who you've never talked to can pick you," said Boyle.

The Eagles have looked at Boyle extensively.

Coach Chip Kelly has watched him play at least a few times.

Not only is Kelly friends with University of Delaware offensive coordinator Sean Devine, they also coached together years back at New Hampshire and they run a similar style offense.

If the eagles call, Boyle says it would be a perfect fit.

"I think that would be extremely easy for me to pick up their playbook," he said.

The former Blue Hens captain is also receiving interest from the Texans, Bucks and Colts - just to name a few.

At 6'5" and 270 pounds, Boyle stood out at the Senior Bowl and the NFL Combine with his ability to catch and block.

"You're lucky enough to get the opportunity then what you do from that point on determines if you stay on the team or not," said Boyle.

All he can do now is wait for his name to be called.
