Thanks to Matt Barkley and Landry Jones deciding to return to school, Foles has rocketed up draft boards and is in the mix to be the third quarterback taken (after Stanford's Andrew Luck and Baylor's Robert Griffin).
Foles certainly has the ideal size, as he's nearly 6'5" and 245 pounds, and he also has a nice release, good accuracy, and a strong arm to go with all of that. His footwork needs improvement, but any team who drafts the Arizona product would likely plan on sitting him for a few years anyway, so there would be time for development.
The 23-year-old completed 69.1 percent of his passing in 2011, while throwing for 4,334 yards, with 28 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. When you consider the roster he had around him, those numbers are remarkable.
Foles is not very mobile, but has presence and awareness in the pocket. His intangibles are fantastic and if he plays well this week expect the late first-round buzz he's been getting to continue.
