IF we don't draft a QB in round one, I'd say Foles and maybe Nassib or Dysert in round 2 or 3 would be the next best option. I'd take Foles over Alex Smith, I certainly would.
This is not a 'backup'. This is not a starter that lost his job due to poor play. This is a kid who, as a rookie, played quite well on an absolute disaster of a team.
I agree with almost all of this other than the compensation. I'm not giving up anything more than a 4th for Foles.
You could literally get someone just like him in the 3rd round this year.
