Eagles seeking value on final day of National Football League draft

Jamey Eisenberg: This wasn't the ideal landing spot for Goedert for his Fantasy value since the Eagles have a star ahead of him on the depth chart with Zach Ertz. This is an excellent fit for both parties. The Eagles released veteran tight end Brent Celek and allowed Trey Burton to leave in free agency. He's considered a decent blocker, but Pederson said the Eagles don't really demand a ton of in-line blocking from their tight ends, and Goedert's explosiveness is what really stands out. He dominated the competition during his collegiate career, highlighted by a 92-catch, 1,293-yard season in 2016 that also had 11 touchdowns. Exciting to have a player like this, a pick like this, that can add to our roster. Wentz and Goedert share an agent and when the latter was at the NovaCare Complex earlier this month for a pre-draft visit they met. Goedert was McShay's top tight end prospect. Wentz texted him after he was picked. They have one pick in the sixth round and another in the seventh.

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

General manager John Dorsey has already selected two players who were walk-ons in college and it seems all of this year's picks so far have overcome long odds to make it to the pros. Asked who his comparison is as a basketball player, he joked, "I would have to say LeBron".

Now again Snapchat is trying their luck in the spectacles department by launching the V2 of the Spectacles. Three new colors are available, onyx, ruby, and sapphire, with two different lenses per color variant.

As a fourth-round pick to a quality Eagles' defense, Maddox should initially make his presence known on special teams.

Unlike James, Goedert doesn't have an affinity for the Cowboys, even though he was named after them. The Eagles will return starters Fletcher Cox and Tim Jernigan, and signed 34-year old vet Haloti Ngata. "'Would you be all right if we traded up to get you?'" Goedert recalled. "And I like a lot of things that he does and I think I can do well".
