NFL Draft 2012: Nick Foles Better Than Robert Griffin III Under Pressure, According To Todd McShay

A good majority of teams in the NFL will at least be considering selecting a quarterback at the 2012 NFL Draft. While the top-two quarterbacks (Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III) have all but guaranteed themselves a high selection in the first round, guys like Nick Foles, Brock Osweiler, Ryan Tannehill and others are all looking to boost their stock.

While recently reviewing tape, scouting guru Todd McShay of ESPN noticed something Foles does very well, even more so than Griffin.

And another tweet:

No one is suggesting Foles is the better prospect than Griffin or any of the other names mentioned, but it does bode well for the former-Wildcat going forward as scouts begin to evaluate his game tapes. He certainly lacks the foot speed to become an elusive runner at the next level, but Foles' ability to throw with the defense in his face could help make up for that.
