Arizona QB Foles drafted by Eagles
Arizona's Nick Foles was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 88th pick in the third round Friday, making him the school's first drafted QB since Eddie Wilson in 1962.
Foles deserved to be picked.
The 6-foot-5, 240 pound QB started for Arizona the last two-and-a-half years, and finished his career as the school's all-time leader in passing yards (10,011) and tied for the top mark in career touchdown passes with 67.
Foles, who set a Pac-12 record with 4,334 yards passing as a senior in 2011, was accurate throughout his college career, but is not known as the best athlete and has questionable footwork at times.
Playing for a team that had its struggles, Foles also had a tendency to make questionable decisions with the ball, often times forcing it into coverage.
He finished his final season in Tucson with a career-best 28 touchdowns, but also a career-high 14 interceptions.
However, he boasts prototypical size and strength, and his production at the collegiate level was as good as anyone who will be drafted this season.
The Wildcat was the sixth QB taken in the draft, being selected after Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Ryan Tannehill, Brandon Weeden and Brock Osweiler.
