David Akers trolls Cowboys fans announcing Eagles pick

The Super Bowl champions selected tight end Dallas Goedert after trading up three spots in the second round to make their first pick in the draft. Previous year the Eagles ran a lot of two-tight end sets with Celek on blocking downs and Burton on passing downs.

Carson Wentz, the Eagles starting quarterback from North Dakota State, seemed happy after the pick. Dallas Goedert caught 72 passes for 1,111 yards last season and had 198 catches for 2,988 yards and 21 touchdowns in his career.

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.

"Yeah, I think so without a doubt, as far as not getting selected until the fourth round", said Sweat answering a question during a conference call with reporters on Saturday. All-in-all, Goedert is the total package at tight end.

IPhone 11 will ditch 3D Touch to reduce costs
Apple first introduced 3D Touch with the iPhone 6S in 2015, and at the time most of the reviews raved about the feature. So, for this expensive display upgrade, the company might ditch the 3D Touch feature in order to balance out the costs.

"Dallas is a blue-collar kid that works extremely hard and for him specifically - this is a guy we felt dominated at that level of play the last two years", Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas said.

Just last week, Ertz had spoken about the complexities of learning the tight end position in the Eagles' system. The 6-5, 260-pound product of South Dakota State fills a big need in the wake of the transition away from Brent Celek, who was released, and Trey Burton, who signed with the Bears.

Goedert's Senior Bowl week was cut short because of a hamstring injury, which kept him from running the 40-yard dash at the combine and his pro day. Though the two ACC prospects appealed to the Eagles for different reasons, they have share an opportunity moving forward: They can compete for playing time on a Super Bowl-caliber defense. They had just acquired the 52nd pick the night before in a trade with Baltimore to move out of the first round.

"The first thing [the Eagles said on the call] is". Coach and his staff are really excited about the way we can utilize him.
