    Rd 1 - 026 -

    Eagles trade first round pick (#26) to Dallas Cowboys for the Cowboys 2nd round pick (#36 Via Cleveland), 3rd round pick (#87) and 5th round pick (#159)

    Rd 2 - 036 - (from Dallas via Cleveland)

    Kevin Kolb QB, Houston

    BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter named Conference USA Player of the Year as a senior after career passing numbers of 67.6%/3,809/30/4. Junior totals included 3,258 passing yards with 19 touchdowns.

    POSITIVES: Poised pocket passer with nice size. Takes control of the offense, has a nice sense of where his receivers are on the field and is a presence behind center. Sees the field, finds the open wideout and quickly releases the ball. Uses all his targets.

    NEGATIVES: Takes most of his snaps from the shotgun and benefits from a three-receiver system. Tends to direct his throws. Stares down the primary target.

    ANALYSIS: A signal caller with a good degree of upside, Kolb offers the physical skills to play at the next level. Will need time to get accustomed to an NFL offense yet a solid developmental prospect.

    Rd 2 - 057 - Victor Abiamiri DE, Notre Dame

    BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past two seasons after seeing sporadic playing time with the first team as a freshman. Posted 43/15/10.5 last year after 48/15/8 as a junior.

    POSITIVES: Athletic edge-rusher who makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage. Fluid changing direction and plays with good speed. Gets leverage on opponents, plays with good balance and is rarely off his feet. Displays excellent range on the field.

    NEGATIVES: Struggled as a senior and was lacking last year. Overall game does not show a lot of quickness. He was slow locating the ball, and consistently over-pursued the action. Not strong at the point and easily pushed from his angle of attack.

    ANALYSIS: After a brilliant junior campaign, much was expected from Abiamiri last season. While the numbers were good, his overall play was justifiably labeled as disappointing. Offers tremendous potential and has the ability to start at the next level.

    Rd 3 - 087 - (from Dallas)

    Stewart Bradley LB, Nebraska

    BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past three seasons, leading the team in tackles as a senior with career-best numbers of 76/6/1. Limited to five games as a junior after suffering a knee injury, and finished the year with 26/5/3.

    POSITIVES: Big, physically dominant linebacker who is best up the field. Plays heads-up football, remains disciplined and stays with assignments. Breaks down well and is a sturdy linebacker who defeats blocks on his way to the action. Forces the action up the field.

    NEGATIVES: Has limitations in coverage. Over-pursues the action on occasion.

    ANALYSIS: An underrated linebacker prospect whose game took off last season after a return from injury, Bradley has made a late move up draft boards. A better fit on the inside of a 34 alignment, and offers a good degree of upside.

    Rd 3 - 090 - Tony Hunt RB, Penn State

    POSITIVES: Powerful runner who is best on the inside. Strong in his lower body, keeps his feet moving on contact and breaks tackles to pick up yardage off initial contact. Displays good vision, always looks downfield to set up blocks and instinctive.

    NEGATIVES: Not an elusive runner who makes defenders miss. Average speed and cannot beat defenders around the corner.

    ANALYSIS: Possessing a solid overall game, Hunt is a competitive back with potential at the next level. Could develop into a starter, or may be effectively used in a system which rotates ball carriers.
