The Eagles have reportedly worked out recently former Arizona Wildcats quarterback Nick Foles. Foles, who stands at 6-5, projects as a second or third-round draft pick.
It’s worth mentioning because he is just the latest quarterback to be looked at by the Eagles this offseason. It’s one thing to perform “due diligence,” but it’s another thing to look into Peyton Manning, Robert Griffin III, Ryan Tannehill, and now Foles.
By the way, here’s what Greg Cosell of NFL Films had to say about Foles.
“Arm speed slow at this point. Negative impact on velocity. Did not drive the ball on few intermediate throws or sideline throws.”
Regardless, the Eagles are interested in adding a quarterback to the roster during this month’s NFL Draft.
And, as Peter King points out, given the Eagles two second-round draft picks, it makes sense on a few different levels to go quarterback at some point during the early rounds of the draft.
“The Eagles have the 51st overall pick, courtesy of the Kevin Kolb deal last year, along with the 46th pick. I can see Andy Reid going developmental quarterback with one of those picks,” said King.
Yes, and so can I.
