In the trade, the Eagles acquired a second-round pick (No. 52) fourth-round pick (No. 125) and a second-round pick for 2019. The Eagles are quarterbacked by former North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz - the No. 2 overall pick in 2016 - and have Sioux Falls native and former University of Nebraska safety Nate Gerry in their defensive back corps, a fifth-round pick in 2017. The 23-year-old senior averaged 82 receptions, 1,202 receiving yards and nine touchdowns the last two seasons. Goedert is a solid candidate to absorb the snaps left behind by Trey Burton.
The Eagles traded up and took Goedert one pick ahead of the Dallas Cowboys, who are dealing with the reported retirement of long-time TE Jason Witten. "Then he said something about "get ready" and then 'we've got some business to do.' And I said I'm excited and I can't wait to get out there and play with you".
"After I saw a couple people retire and another guy get picked up by a different team I knew there was a need there", Goedert said. 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.
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. This is a guy we felt dominated at that level of play the last two years.
At 5 feet, 9 inches, Maddox lacks ideal size for an National Football League cornerback, but the leaders of the Eagles' front office raved Saturday about his tenacity. Both Pro Bowl tight ends routinely beat linebackers down the seam and out-muscle safeties on shorter routes. He also took a shot at the Cowboys and their fans, reminding them how long it's been since Dallas was in the Super Bowl.
"Beating man coverage is a lot like driving to the hole, doing a crossover to get by somebody", Goedert said.
"He's going to add some depth and competition to the position obviously", Pederson said. 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 Eagles will be waiting in line for another 20 picks before they get to make their selection.
