|3 QBs Off the Board Early in Round 2
to start the first 11 picks of the second round, 3 QBs were taken. Surprisingly, they were not the three QBs most people expected. Many scouts thought Trent Edward was the 3rd best QB and he should go early in round 2, then came John Beck and Drew Stanton. The Eagles shocked a lot of people when they chose Kevin Kolb out of Houston with the #36 pick. Beck went to the Dolphins as expected and Stanton stays in Michigan with Detroit. Edwards is still on the board, but should go soon, I would think.
To start the 2nd round, the Cardinals selected Alan Branch. Branch is a very talented DT but has some isues with his work ethic. He may have been a top 5 overall pick had his senior season been a little more productive. Next came talented linebacker Paul Posluszny to Buffalo. Paul was Penn State's all time leading tackler from "linebacker U."
Superstar Sidney Rice went off the board at #44 to Minnesota while Dwayne Jarrett went to Carolina at #45. Both are very talented receivers. Experience may have hurt Rice while speed concernes may have hurt Jarrett. Both should have very good careers.
