  • Former Eagles Kicker David Akers Trolls Dallas Cowboys Hard at the NFL Draft

Enter the Eagles all-time scoring leader, former kicker David Akers.

Akers obviously has some bragging rights as the Eagles are Super Bowl champions, but his zinger about the players the Cowboys and every other team picking not even being born the last time the Cowboys won a championship?

Still, Goedert knew the Eagles were interested in him, after they met with him at the scouting combine, brought him to Philadelphia for a visit and attended his pro day workout. This is a guy we felt dominated at that level of play the last two years.

"Just on the tape, you see a guy that can separate at the top of routes, and a guy that's going to be the friend to the quarterback", Douglas said.

The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Goedert was the third tight end taken in this year's draft.


"The ones I talked to, they don't really think there's going to be very much of a learning curve", he said. He had 72 receptions for 1,111 yards and seven touchdowns last season, helping the Jackrabbits advance to the Division I FCS semifinals.

Peele said he patterns his game after National Football League tight ends Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz. Coach and his staff are really excited about the way we can utilize him. "It's exciting to have a pick like this to add". Wentz and Goedert share an agent and when the latter was at the NovaCare Complex earlier this month for a pre-draft visit they met. Immediately after the pick was in, Wentz shot off one text message after another to his newest weapon. The Eagles gave up their fifth-round pick (pick 159) to make this move, but it was worth it for two reasons.

The Philadelphia Eagles drafted Goedert in the second round of the NFL Draft with the No. 49 pick overall Friday night. The Eagles traded the 52nd and the 169th overall picks to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for the 49th overall pick.

But when he faced the 13th-ranked TCU as a junior, he caught 5 passes for 96 yards and a touchdown.
