The Super Bowl champions traded up ahead of the division-rival Dallas Cowboys. That said, Goedert is confident he can make a relatively seamless transition to the NFL. He will be an asset in the red zone with his skills to sky high and make tremendous catches with body control and uncanny one-handed skills.

Goedert jokingly compared himself to LeBron James when asked for a basketball comparison, but his football analogies-Ertz and the Chiefs' Travis Kelce-made more sense. Goedert was McShay's top tight end prospect. "And I said, 'Man, that'd be the most incredible thing ever'". He was productive at the FCS level, catching 164 passes for 2,404 yards and 18 touchdowns over his last two seasons. His career yards-per-catch average is 15.1.

Akers played up Philadelphia's status as defending Super Bowl champs.

A hamstring injury ended his Senior Bowl week and kept him from running the 40-yard dash at the National Football League combine and his Pro Day, but Douglas said there was more than enough on tape to make an accurate evaluation of his speed.

Senate Judiciary Committee Approves Bill to Protect Special Counsel Mueller
Special Counsel Robert Mueller leaves a meeting with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee in Washington on June 21, 2017. The latter two Republicans cosponsored the legislation with Democrats Cory Booker of New Jersey and Chris Coons of Delaware.

"It's a group of highly competitive guys", Douglas said, "and he's going to blend in perfectly and even stand out to a degree".

Goedert said he's had some interaction with Wentz leading up to the draft with the two former Missouri Valley stars sharing the same Rep 1 Sports agency out of Irvine, Calif. Goedert said Wentz was one of the first people to send him a text message after Goedert got the call from the Eagles.

"We spoke to our doctors, our training staff, and they cleared him for us, so we're very excited to get this guy". The Eagles utilized the tight end position often in the passing game in 2017, and they are now without Brent Celek and Trey Burton. 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.
