Scouts Inc. takes a look at major offseason storylines every Monday:

What do the Eagles have in Kevin Kolb?

When analyzing a backup quarterback such as Kolb, who doesn't have a lot of meaningful film yet at this level, we must understand that the Eagles know way more about him than any of us. They see him every day at practice and in the quarterback meeting room. They know how popular he is with his teammates, how intelligent he is and whether he is a good person. Much like Charlie Whitehurst or Matt Schaub when he went to the Texans, sometimes the true value of such a player is not entirely evident on film. But, as always, the film also never lies.
