Philadelphia Eagles select South Dakota State TE Dallas Goedert

Then the Philadelphia Eagles swooped in and smashed that storyline to smithereens, just in case.

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

Former Dallas wide receiver Dez Bryant, who was cut by the team two weeks ago, tweeted that Akers should be careful leaving the stadium after the draft.

The Cowboys, who lost future Hall of Famer Jason Witten to retirement earlier in the day, were expected to take Goedert with the 50th pick.

"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.

Per ESPN's Todd Archer, the Cowboys didn't have their sights set on Goedert.

The Eagles traded into the No. 49 pick, one spot ahead of the Dallas Cowboys. He is the first NFL Draft pick from SDSU since 2010 when the Buffalo Bills selected defensive end Danny Batten in the sixth round.

The researchers also caution that patients should always consult with their physicians before changing any medication regimen. This risk increased by three percentage points among those who had used anticholinergics for more than one year, they said.

As a 5-star, top-10 recruit coming out of high school in 2014, Sweat logged 138 total tackles, 29 tackles for loss and 14.5 sacks in only 35 games as a 4-3 base end in his three years at Florida State, and looked like an National Football League player even while in college. He finished his senior season with 72 catches and 1,111 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.

Reveling in the boos he got, Akers added, "We heard you in Philly past year!"

Goedert shares the same agency with Carson Wentz, who went to North Dakota State.

Goedert is the top-rated tight end in the draft according to Ourlad's Scouting Services and other draft publications. "Joe said it best: This is a friend for the quarterback". Immediately after the pick was in, Wentz shot off one text message after another to his newest weapon.

"They don't think there's really going to be very much of a learning curve", Goedert said of the Eagles. "It's exciting to have a pick like this to add".

Some fans were not happy that the Eagles were going to sit at No. 52 and wait to make their first selection of the draft, and it seemed Roseman felt the same. The Eagles are likely salivating over the possibilities with both Ertz and Goedert on the field together. How we block, how we use our tight end in schemes.

"I like standing up here before you as an undrafted free agent, representing that shield for 15 years".
