PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Eagles are hoping to pick up the beat with Kelly’s fast-paced workouts.  As the team gathered for day one of their three-day OTA in South Philadelphia, they hit the field with the same fast pace their coach had been promising.  The workouts also featured music, and players such as Nick Foles welcomed the change.

“I like the music,” said Foles.  “You have people in the stands when you play.  It really helps with communication because it is loud.  It’s quite a selection.”

Kelly is less concerned about being a DJ and more worried about getting his team to keep pace with his practices.  So far, Kelly likes what he sees.

“They’ve been great since we’ve been here,” Kelly said.  “We’ve got a group of guys that are really eager.  They want to learn.  They’ve been attentive in meetings.  I give those guys a ton of credit.  I’m really happy with where they are.”

For those worried about a depth chart and who has the edge in position battles, Kelly says the team has a long way to go before he has a better idea of what his depth chart will look like.

“All of the guys have done a decent job,” said Kelly.  “But we’ve got a ways to go.  Our defense was going against barrels and our offense was going against air.”

One of the most competitive battles is expected to be at quarterback.  Michael Vick said he will welcome rookie Matt Barkley to the team, but he still has his sites set on being the Eagles starting quarterback.

“I always feel ike I’m a starter,” Vick said.  “I think the mindset that you have to have is that you’re going to be the number one guy.”

The workouts will continue through Wednesday.
