Browns enter third day of draft with 5 picks

Jeannette Daniel | 29 April, 2018, 00:43

After reminding Cowboys fans of their team's 22-year championship drought as boos rained down from the stands, Akers reminded them of the Eagles' Super Bowl championship this past season.

Enter the Eagles all-time scoring leader, former kicker David Akers. They don't have a third-round pick, so Goedert is the only player they've taken through two days of the draft. Wentz, who attended SDSU rival North Dakota State, shares the same sports agency with Goedert. "Dallas is a blue-collar kid that works extremely hard".

Eagles player personnel chief Joe Douglas was impressed with Goedert's size and agility for a big man.

Goedert figured the Cowboys, who had the 50th pick, might take him off the board before the Eagles because of the expected retirement of Witten. Goedert said his first name is Dallas because his dad is a Cowboys fan.

"I think both him and I can be put anywhere on the field so the offense can have the best mismatch available", Goedert said. The 23-year-old senior averaged 82 receptions, 1,202 receiving yards and nine touchdowns the last two seasons. The Eagles utilized the tight end position often in the passing game in 2017, and they are now without Brent Celek and Trey Burton. "He's been around the building talking to us about him a little bit". Exciting to have a player like this, a pick like this, that can add to our roster.


"Carson has talked to us about him and he's excited", Roseman said.

The fact that the Eagles moved up to get a big time prospect coupled with this epic announcement makes this whole situation even sweeter. They have one pick in the sixth round and another in the seventh.

South Dakota State University tight end Dallas Goedert was selected by the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the National Football League Draft Friday night.

Goedert was known to many as the top tight end in this year's draft.
