See former Eagle David Akers trolling Cowboys even before announcing draft pick

The Philadelphia Eagles had former kicker David Akers announce their second round draft pick in AT&T Stadium, home of the rival Dallas Cowboys. The Super Bowl champions had only one pick in the first two days of the draft after trading out of the first round.

Saturday, the Eagles selected Florida State defensive end Josh Sweat with the No. 130 overall pick.

I don't even know who the Eagles drafted (it was TE Dallas Goedert), this promo blew everything out of the water.

"This is a guy that we felt dominated at that level of play", vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas said.

With Mike Mayock describing Maddox as a "first round pick had he been a few inches taller" after the pick was announced on NFL Network, it looks like the Eagles lucked their way into a flawless inner-division defender who could add some optionality to Jim Schwartz's defensive backfield. "Tonight, I'm representing the Philadelphia Eagles".

Goedert had 72 catches for 1,111 yards and seven touchdowns as a senior after posting 92-1,293-11 as a junior. "Thus, Goedert could be a quality receiving tight end in the pros, although he probably won't be elite given the lack of speed, suddenness, and an ability to separate". The Eagles released veteran tight end Brent Celek and allowed Trey Burton to leave in free agency.

"It's going to add some depth and competition to the position", head coach Doug Pederson said. "He's been around the building talking to us about him a little bit". 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.

"Carson has talked to us about him and he's excited", Roseman said. The Eagles traded the 52nd and the 169th overall picks to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for the 49th overall pick. Immediately after the pick was in, Wentz shot off one text message after another to his newest weapon.

Akers was relentlessly booed by Cowboys fans as he listed off the Philadelphia Eagles' accomplishments from last season, including their division title, a conference title and of course their Super Bowl success.
