While the debate over the rookie class of QB’s will continue through the draft and the months after, veteran QB’s will also bogart the conversations when and if the NFL and NFLPA agree to a new labor deal. Of the veteran QB’s that may or may not be available is Kevin Kolb who the Eagles have reportedly put on the trade block. Initial reports about the rumor was that the Eagles wanted a 1st and a third for their one time starter who lost his job to Michael Vick after being injured. Rumors then claimed that the Eagles would take a 1st or a 2nd rounder.
It’s all nothing but speculation honestly because one, there is no CBA and thus teams can’t even discuss what players might be worth, and two the Eagles haven’t officially declared that Kolb is available…see reason number 1.
So with all that being said, would Kolb, assuming that there is any truth to that rumor at all, be worth a 2nd round pick?
Before you answer the poll, consider this. The Dolphins don’t have a 2nd round pick and if they were to get a second round pick by trading down in the draft, that second would likely be in the second half of round 2 and not at the top. Also consider that “IF” the CBA is signed after the draft, that the second rounder would be from the 2012 draft and could be higher or lower than Miami’s current slotting of 15 in round one and what would have been the same area in round 2 had they not traded the pick away.
Also consider that the last time we traded with the Eagles for a QB we spent a very high 2nd rounder on A.J. Feely.
