David Akers destroys Dallas Cowboys in their house

That's high praise for a player coming from such a small school, but Goedert definitely has that type of playmaking ability. He finished the season with 61 rushing yards on 15 carries along with 73 receiving yards on seven receptions, which were each career-low marks in the last decade.

His selection in the fifth round is a stunning result as teams are traditionally reluctant to use their draft picks on punters. The team did not yet announce which pick they traded in the deal to draft Mailata.

"The first one was, 'Let's go, homie!' with sunglasses and a pound fist", Goedert said via conference call, drawing laughs.

Goedert shares the same agency with Carson Wentz, who went to North Dakota State.

Former West Virginia WR Tavon Austin traded to Dallas Cowboys
The eighth overall pick in 2013 out of Baylor, Austin's career never took off the way many had anticipated. For his career he's averaged a running back-like 8.7 yards per catch.


The saga that is now two years deep is going to continue to get better and better. It's different now - they're rolling them in and out and you're seeing defensive ends playing inside.

Eagles player personnel chief Joe Douglas was impressed with Goedert's size and agility for a big man.

One position where the Eagles have had a lot of talent over the last few seasons has been at running back, and they're set to add further to it.

"I think Philadelphia might have thought that as well", he said. "I'm so lucky to have their blessing and this may not have happened without them backing me to do so". He performed well in athletic testing at his pro day. If Goedert is as advertised, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson won't have any trouble finding a role for him.

Brown was considered "very doubtful" to play, coach Brad Stevens had said. "Honestly, we can try all we want to". They've also connected on 47.9 percent of their shots from the field-good for fourth among playoff teams.


The Philadelphia Eagles and their former kicker stuck it to the Cowboys by drafting a kid named Dallas.

And while he only started training as an Offensive Lineman a mere four months ago, one thing and one thing alone caught Philly's attention for long enough to pick him: Mailata is a fucken big boy.

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. "Hey Dallas, the last time you were in the Super Bowl these draft picks weren't born!" Prosise during his first season on campus, Adams received at least 115 carries for 800 yards in each of his first two seasons with the team before taking over the lead back role going into 2017.

In fact, the Eagles liked him so much they traded up from 250th to 233rd to get him, sending 2019 seventh rounders to the Patriots as compensation.

The NFL's official Twitter account tweeted out Mailata's highlights video - which was played at the Draft - and accompanied it with this caption: "His highlights are. insane, dominant, ridiculous".
