Six-time Pro Bowl kicker David Akers needled Cowboys fans when he made the announcement in their stadium. The Super Bowl champions had only one pick in the first two days of the draft after trading out of the first round.

In announcing the Eagles' second round pick, Akers unleashed the kind of promo that someone from WWE would stand up and applaud.

Goedert figured the Cowboys, who had the 50th pick, might take him off the board before the Eagles because of the expected retirement of Witten.

"I saw my phone ring and my heart stopped for a little bit", said Goedert, who is from Britton, S.D. He had 72 receptions for 1,111 yards and seven touchdowns last season, helping the Jackrabbits advance to the Division I FCS semifinals. He'll team with Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz to help Philadelphia's offense create mismatches.

The Eagles don't ask their tight ends to pass block much, but Goedert will be asked to carry his share of the load in the run game. "He's a tremendous player, a tremendous asset, a weapon for us that I think we can utilize with some of the things you saw with Trey Burton and having him on the field as well with Zach". Exciting to have a player like this, a pick like this, that can add to our roster. According to Roseman, Wentz had been talking up Goedert in the building during the pre-draft process, and let the front office know that this pick had his stamp of approval afterward.
