Philadelphia Eagles, Super Bowl champions, turn to defense in 4th round

He had 72 receptions for 1,111 yards and seven touchdowns last season, helping the Jackrabbits advance to the Division I FCS semifinals. "He can separate at the top of routes and he's a guy who is going to be a friend to the quarterback".

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

"It's a unique position because there's run and pass involved", Pederson said.

"The World champs! Hey Dallas, the last time you won a Super Bowl, these draft picks weren't born!"

The Philadelphia Eagles drafted Goedert in the second round of the NFL Draft with the No. 49 pick overall Friday night. After taking Sweat at No. 130, the Eagles have to wait until No. 206.

Though the NFC East's current collection of slot receivers are fairly impressive, as Cole Beasley, Jamison Crowder, and Sterling Shepard have collectively gouged the Eagles' defense for yards on the inside year-in and year-out, none of these players are the pure playmaker that Austin has proven himself to be at times in the National Football League and maybe once more become while catching passes from Dak Prescott in Dallas.

Trump called the existing accord "insane" and "ridiculous" , despite European pleas for him not to walk away. He said if his demands are not met within 120 days, the United States would withdraw from the deal.

"I saw my phone ring and my heart stopped for a little bit", said Goedert, who is from Britton, S.D. The roster now lacks a traditional in-line blocking tight end, but the Eagles will have the ability to move their TEs just about anywhere in the formation and present looks that will be hard to handle. The Cowboys settled for offensive tackle Connor Williams.

But what David Akers did after the Eagles went out last season and won the Super Bowl?

About the only area where Goedert came up short in was history.

Goedert is a very talented pass catching tight end with the ability to work all three levels of the field.

Retzlaff, 86, still is one of the Eagles' all-time leading receivers. Although the Eagles have some major talent left available to acquire with the 32nd pick, Howie Roseman and Joe Douglas decided that it was best to make a trade with the Baltimore Ravens. The Eagles complete the draft Saturday. Immediately after the pick was in, Wentz shot off one text message after another to his newest weapon.
