Dallas Goedert: Lands with Eagles

Adjust Comment Print

The story of the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft is former Philadelphia Eagles kicker David Akers. Howie Roseman and Joe Douglas made a decision to trade up to take the guy they want.

Goedert said there are two tight ends on the pro level he emulates: Travis Kelce and his new running partner, Zach Ertz.

In his college playing career, Carson Wentz's biggest rival was South Dakota State.

"When you make your head coach wait 49 picks for a player, it's nice to make him happy", Eagles vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said.

Goedert, who got his first name because his father was a Cowboys fan, said he thought Dallas was going to pick him, given the Witten reports.

They selected tight end Dallas Goedert with the 52nd overall pick.

The Eagles have taken chances on size-speed freak defensive ends in recent years, notably Alex McCalister in the seventh round of the 2016 draft, though Sweat is a far better prospect.

After trading out of the first round Thursday night, the Eagles gave Indianapolis a second-round pick (No. 52) and fifth-round pick (No. 169) to get Goedert at No. 49.

The questions about Goedert, at least as a receiver, relate more to his level of competition than to his skills. Unlike Ertz though, Goedert is a pretty good blocker.

R.J. White: Recruited out of Britton, South Dakota, Goedert redshirted in 2013 before seeing limited work in 2014 as a freshman, then catching 26 balls for 484 yards and three TDs as a sophomore. "To be able to play with him, it's going to be a lot of fun".

Akers played up Philadelphia's status as defending Super Bowl champs. "'Would you be all right if we traded up to get you?'" Goedert recalled.
