What if the Eagles traded...

A new Eagles poll.

What if the Eagles traded...

Here's a new poll. Still trying to get people to think about the possibility of trading up in the first round, something most people seem to want no parts of.

Granted, this is a little overly simplistic. First off, nobody knows if any of those receivers are really, actually available to the Eagles. Second, it probably would take more than a first and a third for some of them -- some extra doo-dad or another would have to be thrown in. Third, trading up in the first round is really more art than science anymore, and espeically this year, so you really have to guess a little bit about what kind of value it would take to move up. (More on that in Friday's column in the paper.)

Oh, and I spelled Braylon wrong on the poll but can't figure out how to fix it. All apologies.

About this blog
Rich Hofmann arrived at the Daily News in 1980 for a job whose status was officially designated as "full-time, temporary." A senior at Penn at the time, he was hired to fill in on the copy desk during a staff illness. The notion of him covering the Eagles or being a columnist did not exist in anyone's imagination. It was supposed to be six weeks and out, but he never left. It is only one of the reasons why so many people have concerns about him as a potential house guest.
