2018 NFL Draft NFC East beefs

"World champs!" Akers said referencing the Eagles.

Screaming over boos, Akers brought the intensity before announcing Dallas Goedert as the newest Eagle.

The Eagles selected Goedert in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft, 49th overall. Particularly winning the first Super Bowl in franchise history.

The coup de grace came as Akers revealed the Eagles' pick - a prospect who shares a name with the Cowboys - tight end Dallas Goedert. "Dallas is a blue-collar kid that works extremely hard".

Past year the Eagles went defensive back on the second day, taking Sidney Jones off the board in the second round and Rasul Douglas in the third round. You can nearly see Akers just revel in all those boos. He finished his senior season with 72 catches and 1,111 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. He joins Lynn Boden, who was picked as an offensive lineman 13th overall by Detroit in 1975. The Eagles made a trade to move in front of Dallas ... in Dallas's stadium ... to take a tight end named Dallas. The Eagles released veteran tight end Brent Celek and allowed Trey Burton to leave in free agency. "He's a tremendous weapon we can utilize".

I don't even know who the Eagles drafted (it was TE Dallas Goedert), this promo blew everything out of the water.

"He's going to add some depth and competition to the position obviously", Pederson said.

"We're really excited about him and his fit as a player and as a person for our program", Roseman said.

The Eagles' got more production out of their 2017 third day draft picks, including wide receiver Mack Hollins, the fourth-round selection out of North Carolina.

Goedert had 198 catches for 2,988 yards and 21 touchdowns during his career at SDSU.
