Goedert caught 72 passes for 1,111 yards and seven touchdowns as a senior, excellent numbers that were actually a dip from an incredible 2016 campaign when Goedert caught 92 passes for 1,293 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Evidently Carson was in their ear about taking the Kid. He was happy via text according to the PC with the selection.

Happy that Akers spoke up the way he did. Wasn’t thrilled he was chosen beforehand. 

Considering a guy like Goedert was mocked at a 1st round average, the trade down yesterday is now acceptable to me.

About the same cadence age wise with Celek and Ertz. Allows us to do a lot, keep that position strong for awhile

I think he could be even better than Ertz

Allows us to have strong 2 TE sets, create mismatches and gives us insurance for when Ertz gets hurt. I really like the selection.

Dallas will be looking for another number to wear as a Eagle. With all the comparisons to Ertz already, he too wore 86. ?

Akers did alright, better than Vince Young

Love the pick and trading up in front of the boys to get him, but..

Akers was cringy as hell. Painful to watch.

Burton’s 88 is now available. Hopefully DG can pick up some of the 23/248/5 stats that Burton contributed, as well.

Honestly don't see that being hard to match. He should be a RZ threat from the jump. Depending of course on the "possible" increased roles of Wallace and Hollins to the offense.
