Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Eagles' draft picks: Round 4/122 -- Mike Kafka, QB, 6-3, 225, Northwestern: With Donovan McNabb gone and Kevin Kolb now the starting quarterback, the Eagles went into the draft looking for a young quarterback they could groom as a backup or eventual trade chip. Kafka has adequate arm strength and accuracy, and should be able to pick up the Eagles' West Coast offense fairly quickly. - by The Sports Xchange

08/27/15 - QB Mike Kafka has outplayed undrafted rookie Taylor Heinicke in the race for the No. 3 quarterback position. But that doesn't necessarily mean Kafka has won the job or that the Vikings will keep three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster. Kafka has thrown only 12 preseason passes, but has a 118.4 passer rating with one touchdown pass and no interceptions.
Heinicke, a raw prospect from Old Dominion, has a 62.4 passer rating with one interception and no touchdowns. The Vikings, however, could keep Heinicke on the practice squad to groom him.
