Eagles draft updates: Birds select Florida State defensive end Josh Sweat

29 April, 2018, 00:43 | Author: Christina Harvey

The Eagles went through day one pretty quiet as they ending up trading out of the first round. "The world champs! Hey Dallas, the last time you were in the Super Bowl, these draft picks weren't born!"

In the trade, the Eagles acquired a second-round pick (No. 52) fourth-round pick (No. 125) and a second-round pick for 2019.

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

"It's a group of highly competitive guys", Douglas said, "and he's going to blend in perfectly and even stand out to a degree".

The Eagles jumped ahead of the Cowboys with the trade, taking a player who could've been on their radar after tight end Jason Witten announced his retirement.




Goedert was named "Dallas" because of his father's affinity for the Cowboys, he said Friday night, adding that he nevertheless rooted for the Green Bay Packers growing up thanks to his stepdad's influence.

"I saw my phone ring and my heart stopped for a little bit", said Goedert, who is from Britton, S.D. He dominated the competition during his collegiate career, highlighted by a 92-catch, 1,293-yard season in 2016 that also had 11 touchdowns. "Thus, Goedert could be a quality receiving tight end in the pros, although he probably won't be elite given the lack of speed, suddenness, and an ability to separate".

He is a nice pass-catching tight end who will replace Trey Burton. I think coach (Doug Pederson) and his staff showed that throughout the season. "He's been around the building talking to us about him a little bit".

"We're really excited about him and his fit as a player and as a person for our program", Roseman said.

As a fourth-round pick to a quality Eagles' defense, Maddox should initially make his presence known on special teams. Immediately after the pick was in, Wentz shot off one text message after another to his newest weapon.
