Goedert to fly with Eagles

  • NFL Draft

Dallas Goedert, a two-time all-American in the FCS, will move into a scarce tight end room behind Zach Ertz.

The Eagles selected Goedert in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft, 49th overall. Wentz texted him after he was picked.

Akers went on to announce their pick of South Dakota State's Dallas Goedert.

The Eagles traded No. 52 (2nd) and No. 169 (5th) to the Colts for No. 49 (2nd).

Now the Super Bowl champions will shift their focus to finding value on Saturday with two picks in the fourth round and one each in the sixth and seventh. But the Eagles love to play a lot of 12 personnel, with two tight ends on the field, and they believe Goedert is NFL-ready.

"They don't think there's really going to be very much of a learning curve", Goedert said of the Eagles. Goedert was McShay's top tight end prospect.

"Carson has talked to us about him and he's excited", Roseman said. It's a great opportunity for us. We just wanted to make sure that we came out of this day with someone we felt really good about. In dynasty leagues, Goedert is worth a third-round pick in rookie-only drafts. "Tremendous player. Tremendous asset to our offense. It's exciting to have a pick like this to add". "Shouldn't take him long at all to get into the mix".

"We heard you in Philly a year ago!" It was his No. 1 sport in high school, and he had higher aspirations, but with his mother's help, was convinced to favor football because there aren't many 6-5 big men in the pros.

There is no reason why Goedert shouldn't see decent targets right out of the gate.

But they could make more selections.

"Guys today are route runners that can block in-line, but [receiving] is their primary job, and this kid is one of those guys".
