Eagles take LSU RB Derrius Guice in Mike Mayock's mock draft

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.

The Eagles already have one of the top tight ends in the league in Zach Ertz, who caught what proved to be the game-winning touchdown in Philadelphia's Super Bowl victory against the New England Patriots last February in Minneapolis. He was productive at the FCS level, catching 164 passes for 2,404 yards and 18 touchdowns over his last two seasons.

Philly gets in front of the Cowboys, and then takes the best tight end available, who is named Dallas! "The size, speed and talent is there for him to succeed as a very good combo tight end if he works and plays with a little more urgency".

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

"He's excited. And I know just from the texts some of us have gotten and the conversations, the quarterbacks are excited", Roseman said. But here he was, Dallas, potentially in line to be drafted by Dallas in a draft held in Dallas.

"The first thing [the Eagles said on the call] is". The Cowboys settled for offensive tackle Connor Williams.

The Philadelphia Eagles had former kicker David Akers announce their second round draft pick in AT&T Stadium, home of the rival Dallas Cowboys.

"World champs!" Akers said referencing the Eagles.

The Eagles won their first Super Bowl last season with a defense loaded with FSU alumni. He was unaware that Pete Retzlaff, the tight end whose No. 44 was retired by the Eagles, starred at South Dakota State. He set 16 SDSU records in track and football. They have two picks in the fifth round and another in the seventh.
