I have been a supporter of Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles since the end of the last season.  I saw things I really liked in him and was not a fan of the Eagles possibly trading him at all. That being said, I still feel the Eagles need to put a high priority on the position during the upcoming 2014 NFL Draft.
