    Round 3 - Pick 88: QB Nick Foles, Arizona
    Per's Charlie Davis: "This is a productive QB out of Arizona. I don't like his feet very much, think he's a bit heavy-footed in the pocket. But with some development, he's got a chance to make his way in this league. He'll get some good coaching in Philadelphia."

    The possible future Eagles quarterback is in the nest for 2012 and beyond.

    The Eagles announced Monday morning that they reached a four-year deal with QB Nick Foles.

    The Birds plucked the former University of Arizona signal caller in the third-round of the 2012 NFL Draft. During his senior season, Foles set Arizona records in completions (387) and yards (4,334).

    Foles, the 88th overall pick in the draft, got a $543,520 signing bonus as dictated by the rookie wage scale, a league source told

    Foles is expected to battle with Mike Kafka and Trent Edwards to backup Mike Vick next season.
