They found 2-3 QBs they want and are content letting one of them fall to 41. Those QBs IMO are Manuel, Wilson and Nassib, perhaps in that order.
I think, given Nix historical lack of wheeler-dealering in the draft, this is probably the correct diagnosis. They found 3 QB they believe have potential as starters, they're willing to take whoever's there, and they don't think any of them will be ready to start his rookie season so they wanted a reasonable option to TJax to avoid throwing a raw prospect into the fire and ruining him. When the Kolb contract comes out, I'm betting there will be little guaranteed or dead money and mucho incentives. They may keep both Kolb and TJax to hedge their bets, or they may cut one in camp.
I think it's also probable there are several other position players they believe will be available at #8 and they plan to stay pat and draft one. I would personally like them to trade back, but I don't see it based on Nix' history.
