2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Nick Foles, QB, Arizona
Foles played in a pass-heavy offense at Arizona that at times was one of the better offenses out of the Pac-12 this season. Foles has very good accuracy from within about 20 yards. He can hit guys in stride, which of course allows them to make plays. When his feet are set, he puts good velocity behind his throws and Foles can certainly attack downfield with his strong arm. His deep range accuracy is lacking. At times, he is a bit of a chucker and sometimes, it looks like he's trying to place it. Either way, he needs to be more consistent with those big throws.
Before the snap, he makes pretty good reads and doesn't have problems checking down. He has a tendency to lock onto his first option so he'll need to learn to look off of other receivers. When Foles is pressured, his elongated release and sub-par mobility really become an issue. Given his size, you'd like to see him hang in the pocket just a bit more and keep his eyes upfield.
