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

08/12/12 - QBs Mike Kafka vs. Nick Foles for the No. 2 quarterback job. Going into camp, Kafka appeared to be the clear favorite over veteran Trent Edwards to be the season-opening backup to Mike Vick, with the loser getting released and rookie third-round pick Foles expected to spend his first NFL season as the No. 3 guy. But Edwards appears to have become a non-factor and Kafka fractured his non-throwing hand against the Steelers. He could miss the final three preseason games, which means more reps for Foles and an improved chance to open the season as Mike Vick's backup.
