The odds are stacked against Eagles rookie third-round Nick Foles.
Ninety-one percent of the starting quarterbacks produced in the previous eight NFL drafts have come from the first round.
Foles isn't paying attention to that.
At Arizona his quarterbacks coach was Frank Scelfo, who at Tulane tutored four NFL passers in Patrick Ramsey (Broncos), J.P. Losman (Bills), Lester Ricard (Jaguars) and Shaun King (Buccaneers). None of those quarterbacks were in great situations, either from a coaching or personnel standpoint.
Foles has looked better than solid at Eagles rookie camp. He has a better grasp of what to do than Kevin Kolb, who came aboard as a second-round pick five years ago.
