No Sweat over knee issues for Eagles' 4th round draft pick

29 April, 2018, 00:43 | Author: Austin Daniel

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.

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. Pittsburgh cornerback Avonte Maddox breaks up a pass intended for Penn State tight end Mike Gesicki during the Penn State-Pitt game in September 2016. He finished his senior season with 72 catches and 1,111 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. Goedert is a solid candidate to absorb the snaps left behind by Trey Burton.

"I saw my phone ring and my heart stopped for a little bit", said Goedert, who is from Britton, S.D. Burton and Celek's contributions will need to get filled and Goedert has the versatility to fill both of their spots. He was unaware that Pete Retzlaff, the tight end whose No. 44 was retired by the Eagles, starred at South Dakota State.

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

Akers was delivering a little bit of retribution for last season's draft as Cowboys great Drew Pearson made fun of the Eagles in front of Philly fans on their own patch twelve months ago. Goedert was McShay's top tight end prospect. They have one pick in the sixth round and another in the seventh.

Domantas Sabonis had a team-high 22 points for the Pacers, who will try to avoid elimination when they host Game 6 on Friday. James also went 15-for-15 from the line and finished with 44 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists.

"Hey Dallas, the last time you won the Super Bowl, these draft picks weren't born".

Goedert was the Eagles' only Day Two draft pick.

At 5 feet, 9 inches, Maddox lacks ideal size for an National Football League cornerback, but the leaders of the Eagles' front office raved Saturday about his tenacity.

"Beating man coverage is a lot like driving to the hole, doing a crossover to get by somebody", Goedert said. "He's a tremendous weapon we can utilize".

"It's going to add some depth and competition to the position", head coach Doug Pederson said.
