Kapadia: Nick Foles

I’ll go ahead and take the lay-up.

If you were to hook Chip Kelly up to a lie detector test and ask him when he really learned who Nick Foles is, I believe he’d say the Raiders game in 2013.

Foles was coming off a nightmarish start against the Cowboys where he suffered a concussion. He sat out the following week, but then was thrust back into action. Yes, it was only the Raiders, but he responded with a seven touchdown performance and never looked back the rest of the season. Read more »

Much of the attention paid to Jaylen Watkins faded as the draft gave way to OTAs and minicamp.

The more that was learned about the Florida product after he was selected in the fourth round by the Eagles, the more expectations grew. A team captain who ran a 4.41 40 on a bad wheel that can play safety and corner? Some wondered if he could make a push for playing time from the jump.

Like many of  his fellow rookies, though, the Florida product found himself working with the third team for most of the spring. Any thoughts of him skyrocketing up the depth chart were put on hold as he began negotiating the steep NFL learning curve.

While he may not have captured the headlines or flashed as much as, say, fellow corner Nolan Carroll this spring, the coaching staff remains optimistic that Watkins can have an impact in 2014 — though there is still plenty of work to be done. Read more »
