Pick No.88

Selected By: Philadelphia Eagles

Round: 3

Pick (Overall): 25 (88)

Pick Analysis: Foles has been a productive signal-caller for Arizona through three years as a starter and has the arm strength and size that warrants first-day consideration for teams looking to fill a void at quarterback. He is a mechanically sound passer who has a solid release. In a different year, Foles might have been considered the top quarterback in the class. He is a big-time leader who rarely gets rattled. Foles' athletic ability will be a concern to some, and some project him as a "game manager" type. But his skill set speaks for itself, so he should be at least a serviceable starter at the next level. If teams can fall in love with his arm strength, he could be selected as early as the second round to develop and become an eventual starter.
