Goedert to fly with Eagles

The Super Bowl champions traded up ahead of the division-rival Dallas Cowboys.

"The last time you were in the Super Bowl, these draft picks weren't born".

The NFL draft always comes with a healthy dose of fanfare, pomp and Hollywood-style storylines, and the 2018 edition was no different thanks to the Dallas Cowboys-baiting David Akers.

Carson Wentz, the Eagles starting quarterback from North Dakota State, seemed happy after the pick.

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

Eagles player personnel chief Joe Douglas was impressed with Goedert's size and agility for a big man. "He can separate at the top of routes and he's a guy who is going to be a friend to the quarterback".

With Mike Mayock describing Maddox as a "first round pick had he been a few inches taller" after the pick was announced on NFL Network, it looks like the Eagles lucked their way into a ideal inner-division defender who could add some optionality to Jim Schwartz's defensive backfield. Goedert said his first name is Dallas because his dad is a Cowboys fan. He averaged 82 catches for 1,200 yards with a combined 18 touchdowns over the past two seasons while playing against FCS competition. Goedert, on the other hand, injured a hamstring during Senior Bowl practices and didn't run a 40-yard dash at the scouting combine or during his pro day, the latter with Eagles tight ends coach Justin Peele on hand.

With Goedert, he replaces Trey Burton, who left the Eagles earlier in the offseason in free agency to join the Chicago Bears. "He's a tremendous weapon we can utilize". Exciting to have a player like this, a pick like this, that can add to our roster. Wentz texted him after he was picked.

A hamstring injury ended his Senior Bowl week and kept him from running the 40-yard dash at the National Football League combine and his Pro Day, but Douglas said there was more than enough on tape to make an accurate evaluation of his speed.
