The current NFL lockout has made preparing for the 2011 season hard for all teams. They had to go into the 2011 NFL Draft without a preceding free agency period. The results of the new CBA, in particular the proposed rookie wage scale, could have altered team plans to move in or out of the top of the draft.
The Eagles were hit especially hard due to the fact that they have a big trading chip in Kevin Kolb. He could have landed the Eagles a first-round pick. Instead, they are stuck in a situation where the market for Kolb has grown thinner due to other teams addressing their quarterback needs through the draft. That, however, doesn't mean there still isn't a market for him and that they can't get a high pick in the 2012 NFL Draft in a trade.
Trading Kolb is one of a few things the Eagles need to do in order to contend for a Super Bowl in the 2011 season.
