"The World champs! Hey Dallas, the last time you won a Super Bowl, these draft picks weren't born!"

There were 256 players taken in the 2018 NFL Draft this weekend.

"We don't want to be in a position where we have this few picks - again", Roseman said.

A draft that should have a lot more action for the Eagles. But Goedert certainly qualifies as that type of player. That means the Eagles now have Alshon Jeffery, Zach Ertz, Nelson Agholor, Mike Wallace, and Goedert as their main passing targets.

"The Eagles traded out of the first round but still were able to get TE Dallas Goedert in the second round".

Maddox fits the competitive nature the Eagles have in their secondary. "This was a guy we felt dominated at that level", said Joe Douglas, the executive vice president of player personnel.

Maddox consistently ranked as Pitt's most productive cover man over the next three years. He is a twitchy athlete which is ideal for going against the likes of Cole Beasley and other quick wideouts that make their living on the inside.

Maddox helped his draft stock with an explosive showing at the National Football League draft combine, where he ran a 40-yard dash time of 4.39 - the seventh fastest among all defensive backs. But that didn't prevent him from being a durable player in college who was cleared by the Eagles' medical staff as someone who should be ready to roll right away. Consider the final three picks ones with high upside and, in the case of Josh Sweat, really high upside.

Wentz was in the MVP race last season before he suffered a season-ending knee injury late in the regular season. Teams have concerns about Pryor - 6-foot-7, 332 pounds - keeping his weight down, but despite his size and a 5.62-second 40-yard dash, the TCU lineman moves surprisingly quickly on tape. Philly was the one that grabbed him. Granted, it is unusual to think of an interior lineman standing at 6-foot-7.

Even the National Football League website only gives him a 50% chance of success.

The Eagles traded into the No. 49 pick, one spot ahead of the Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles gave up their fifth-round pick (pick 159) to make this move, but it was worth it for two reasons.

Mailata has been working out there for several months, training for 4 1/2 hours a day and spending another 3 1/2 hours studying film in order to learn the many nuances of American football, according to an ESPN report.
