No one saw that the Eagles were going to take a QB, let alone one that early. That was a total surprise.
Very few people expected Kolb to go that high and most of those were Houston homers. Kolb was a system QB who wasn't accustomed to being under center and had been in the same system through HS and college. There were a ton of doubts whether he could adapt to the NFL. The Eagles saw something and took a risk and it appears they got it right... but that's not for sure, yet.
That whole trading scenario seems extremely unlikely to me.
