PHILADELPHIA (AP)

The Philadelphia Eagles have selected Arizona quarterback Nick Foles with the 88th overall pick in the NFL draft.

The 6-foot-5, 243-pound Foles could compete with Mike Kafka and veteran Trent Edwards for the backup job behind Michael Vick. Foles is a strong-armed, pocket passer who threw for 4,334 yards as a senior.

Foles played at Michigan State as a freshman before transferring to Arizona. He finished his career with 10,068 yards passing, 67 touchdowns and 33 interceptions. He attended Westlake High in Austin, Texas, where he broke several of Drew Brees' passing records.

Foles was considered a low draft pick my most experts, but the Eagles chose him in the third round.
