Wentz, Eagles Add Old Rival at Tight End

In the trade, the Eagles acquired a second-round pick (No. 52) fourth-round pick (No. 125) and a second-round pick for 2019.

The Super Bowl champions traded up ahead of the division-rival Dallas Cowboys. They selected tight end Dallas Goedert with the 52nd overall pick.

Goedert turned in a strong senior season for the Jackrabbits, catching 72 passes for 1,111 yards and seven touchdowns while again being named a unanimous FCS All-American. Goedert is a solid candidate to absorb the snaps left behind by Trey Burton.

It seems like here Akers was mostly responding to former Cowboy Drew Pearson (who epically trolled the draft crowd in Philly last year) talking down on him to Clark, but the energy definitely carried over onto the stage. "Then he said something about "get ready" and then 'we've got some business to do.' And I said I'm excited and I can't wait to get out there and play with you". Burton and Celek's contributions will need to get filled and Goedert has the versatility to fill both of their spots. Besides their Dakota ties (Wentz, a North Dakota State product, faced off against Goedert at the collegiate level), they also share the same agent.

Bill Cosby found guilty on all counts
After O'Neill mentioned the dog, Cosby stood up at the defense table and made a comical, barking-like motion with his mouth. The jury at Cosby's first trial deliberated for more than 52 hours over six days past year without reaching a verdict.

Probably the most important thing about Zierlein's scouting report on Goedert is that his pro comp for the tight end is Eagles' TE Zach Ertz.

The Eagles drafted defensive end Derek Barnett in the first round previous year, but their other top pass rushers are in their 30s. "And I was kind of hoping I could go there and play for the Eagles".

Goedert stands 6-foot-5, 260 pounds. "We have a Pro Bowl tight end right there, and you think about the combinations, it's exciting to think about what they can do together".

The Eagles entered the draft with four talent young cornerbacks on the roster - Jalen Mills, Ronald Darby, Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas - but none of those players have a ton of experience covering slot receivers in their careers.

Senate advances legislation to protect Robert Mueller from being fired
The 14-7 vote in favor of the bill was divided mostly on party lines, with the Democrats voting yes and the Republicans voting no. The bill would ensure that the special counsel's staff and investigative materials would be preserved in the interim.

The team still has another pick in the sixth round (No. 206) and one in the seventh (No. 250).

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

Peele said he patterns his game after National Football League tight ends Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz.
