Eagles address defense with two fourth-round picks

29 April, 2018, 00:41 | Author: Rachel Mcdaniel

"The world champs! Hey Dallas, the last time you were in the Super Bowl, these draft picks weren't born!" Goedert can fill the Trey Burton role, but he should not be selected in the majority of re-draft leagues. The Eagles are quarterbacked by former North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz - the No. 2 overall pick in 2016 - and have Sioux Falls native and former University of Nebraska safety Nate Gerry in their defensive back corps, a fifth-round pick in 2017.

"Dallas is a blue-collar kid who works extremely hard".

"This is a guy that we felt dominated at that level of play", vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas said.

The knee might be the reason Sweat was still sitting there when the Eagles arrived on the clock with the 130 overall pick.

"I think both him and I can be put anywhere on the field so the offense can have the best mismatch available", Goedert said.

He famously went off-script in 2005 during a nationally televised Hurricane Katrina fundraiser and said then-President George W. In a follow-up tweet, he added, "Next President gon be independent".

Goedert turned in a strong senior season for the Jackrabbits, catching 72 passes for 1,111 yards and seven touchdowns while again being named a unanimous FCS All-American. "Thus, Goedert could be a quality receiving tight end in the pros, although he probably won't be elite given the lack of speed, suddenness, and an ability to separate".

"He's going to add some depth and competition to the position obviously", Pederson said. Coach and his staff are really excited about the way we can utilize him. He tweeted out congratulations to his fellow Dakotan and sent him several text messages. I like this pick for the Eagles. They have one pick in the sixth round and another in the seventh.

It seems like here Akers was mostly responding to former Cowboy Drew Pearson (who epically trolled the draft crowd in Philly last year) talking down on him to Clark, but the energy definitely carried over onto the stage.

Goedert was the third tight end off the board, following South Carolina's Hayden Hurst, who went 25th to Baltimore in Thursday's first round.
