Various reports claim this move could affect the status and future of head coach Chip Kelly, not because of his performance but because Kelly wanted to work with Gamble. The 2014 draft has been a failure to date with only WR Jordan Matthews (second round) and DT Beau Allen (seventh round) making any kind of impact.
