The Philadelphia Eagles used the 49th pick of the 2018 NFL Draft on former South Dakota State tight end Dallas Goedert, adding the receiving threat to an offense that already features tight end Zach Ertz and plenty of other firepower.

Goedert has been compared to Ertz, as well as Travis Kelce and Rob Gronkowski throughout the pre-draft process, and now he'll get the chance to prove analysts right on the other end of throws from Carson Wentz.
The South Dakota State tight end racked up nearly 3,000 receiving yards on almost 200 catches, scoring 21 touchdowns as a Jackrabbit, and proved to be a matchup nightmare.

Goedert landing in Philadelphia is a perfect landing spot for the former FCS stud. He's got a young, talented quarterback, numerous other receiving options around him like Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor, as well as Ertz and a stable of running backs.
With Trey Burton moving on in free agency, Philadelphia found a tight end they can add to a potent offense as they look to get back to the Super Bowl.
