NFL Draft Results 2012, Round 3: Quarterback Nick Foles Picked By Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles selected three defensive players with their first three picks in the 2012 NFL Draft, and went a completely different route with No. 4 as they picked University of Arizona quarterback Nick Foles in the third round., No. 88 overall. Foles is your prototypical-type quarterback as he's 6-foot-5, 245-pound, pocket passer, who could backup starter Michael Vick.

Foles was a three-year starter for the Wildcats, who he threw for 4,334 yards with 28 touchdowns as a senior. The knock on Foles is that his release is a bit slow and he never took that next step in his game during his collegiate career.
