I haven't verified all your listed features but a 3925 router would probably meet most of your them.

I agree with Joseph.  This sounds like a 3925

Should have at least 3 Gig interfaces (at least 1 SFP Port)

Should have at least 2 FE interface

The 3925 already comes with default three 1 Gbps interface (1 SFP dual-personality port).  So you need to purchase additional module(s) for the fastethernet ports.  You can either have a routed or a switchport.
