With Goedert joining Ertz, Eagles' tight ends could become a mismatch nightmare

That pick turned out to be Dallas Goedert, tight end from South Dakota State. He averaged 82 catches for 1,200 yards with a combined 18 touchdowns over the past two seasons while playing against FCS competition. Goedert is a solid candidate to absorb the snaps left behind by Trey Burton.

On Friday, during the draft's second round, the team selected South Dakota State tight end Dallas Goedert with the 49th pick, after moving up three spots by trading their fifth-round pick to the Indianapolis Colts.

"This is a guy that we felt dominated at that level of play", vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas said. All-in-all, Goedert is the total package at tight end. He'll team with Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz to help Philadelphia's offense create mismatches.

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.

The army also announced that four militants had been killed. "Later, during searches, one more terrorist was killed", he said. Abid Ahmad of Khargund and Ishfaq Ahmad of Handoora were killed along with two non local militants in Lam forests of Tral .

His new quarterback, Carson Wentz, knows something about tearing it up in the Missouri Valley Football Conference. The Eagles will return starters Fletcher Cox and Tim Jernigan, and signed 34-year old vet Haloti Ngata.

The Eagles will be waiting in line for another 20 picks before they get to make their selection. The Eagles don't seem to be in a rush to re-sign Graham yet, and with Bennett (32) and Long (33) both in their 30s, this was a draft pick that protects the Eagles against significant roster changes at the position next year. I think coach (Doug Pederson) and his staff showed that throughout the season.

"We spoke to our doctors, our training staff, and they cleared him for us, so we're very excited to get this guy".
