David Akers trolls Cowboys fans announcing Eagles pick

Then the Philadelphia Eagles swooped in and smashed that storyline to smithereens, just in case. Goedert said his first name is Dallas because his dad is a Cowboys fan. But here he was, Dallas, potentially in line to be drafted by Dallas in a draft held in Dallas.

The Eagles traded to pick No. 49 to grab the 6-foot-5, 256-pound tight end, giving up picks in the second and fifth rounds to move up from the 52nd pick to grab the Jackrabbit. He is the first NFL Draft pick from SDSU since 2010 when the Buffalo Bills selected defensive end Danny Batten in the sixth round.

The Eagles didn't have a third-round pick. He had over 1,100 yards receiving in his junior and senior seasons.

"This is a guy that we felt dominated at that level of play", vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas said. Schwartz likes to spread out players in his front four and turn them loose on quarterbacks. 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.

"I think Philadelphia might have thought that as well", he said.

Wentz welcomed Goedert to the Eagles via his Twitter account.

"The first text was "let's go Homie" with sunglasses and a palm fist", Goedert said on a conference call. "It's exciting to have a pick like this to add". "I can't wait to get out there and play with you".

Probably the most important thing about Zierlein's scouting report on Goedert is that his pro comp for the tight end is Eagles' TE Zach Ertz. "Using his leverage, finding soft spots in zones".

Peele said he patterns his game after National Football League tight ends Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz.

"We heard you in Philly past year!"

He is a nice pass-catching tight end who will replace Trey Burton. "We have a Pro Bowl tight end right there, and you think about the combinations, it's exciting to think about what they can do together". He said the hamstring is now fully healed. The 5-foot-9, 184-pounder is projected as a slot corner, which the Eagles now lack after losing Patrick Robinson to New Orleans in free agency.

"I wouldn't say it's frustrating, more motivating".

Unlike James, Goedert doesn't have an affinity for the Cowboys, even though he was named after them. Tracks ball wonderfully down the field and can make catches with coverage draped on him.

"Beating man coverage is a lot like driving to the hole, doing a crossover to get by somebody", Goedert said.
