Eagles hop Cowboys for Dallas Goedert, to Carson Wentz's joy

And Gotsis actually played American Football growing up in Melbourne.

Goedert had 1,111 receiving yards in his senior season at SDSU.

A draft that should have a lot more action for the Eagles.

The defending world champion Philadelphia Eagles just added a defensive playmaker with enormous potential by drafting Florida State defensive end Josh Sweat with the No. 130 overall pick in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Goedert, who got his first name because his father was a Cowboys fan, said he thought Dallas was going to pick him, given the Witten reports. Uh, we traded out of the first round, and traded down into the second round and then, uh, traded back up, just for variety, and then we got a tight end from South Dakota State who did a really good job against Arkansas-Pine Bluff and Montana State. This is a guy we felt dominated at that level of play the last two years. That put them one spot ahead of the Dallas Cowboys, whose 11-time Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten is reportedly planning to retire.

He had been getting plenty of attention around the National Football League for his highlights package showing him blasting through tackles and for his size and power.

Sweat started 12 games last season, amassing 56 tackles (12 ½ for a loss) and a team-high 5 ½ sacks. "It wasn't like I did anything yet", he said. He performed well in athletic testing at his pro day.

Sargsyan's Republican party holds a majority in parliament, which made him premier after he was termed out as president. Protest leader Pashinian and his supporters can count on 47 votes in Parliament.

The selection was less like trying to get a diamond in the rough and probably more like looking for a needle in a haystack because Mailata says he's spent the last few months just learning the game of football. The Eagles now have to extract it from him.

"It's going to depth and competition to the position", coach Doug Pederson said.

You'd think playing experience would be a prerequisite. The only problem here is that Philly plans on moving him to offensive line, which would be an utter waste of talent.

The NFL draft always comes with a healthy dose of fanfare, pomp and Hollywood-style storylines, and the 2018 edition was no different thanks to the Dallas Cowboys-baiting David Akers. Ending up with the Eagles wasn't almost as symbolic as it will be for Philly fans; i.e. Birds beat Cowboys to Dallas, in Arlington, the day of the draft. "You look at what Philly did previous year and they were rolling them in and out".

Retzlaff, 86, still is one of the Eagles' all-time leading receivers. They have one pick in the sixth round and another in the seventh.

Operating with one pick in the first two days of the draft, the Eagles were destined to leave with a limited number of players we can expect to come in and plug holes immediately.
