Eagles address defense with two fourth-round picks

Almost a year later, the defending Super Bowl champions selected Australian rugby player Jordan Mailata from Sydney with the 233rd overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Akers obviously has some bragging rights as the Eagles are Super Bowl champions, but his zinger about the players the Cowboys and every other team picking not even being born the last time the Cowboys won a championship?

Football operations chief Howie Roseman said the Eagles' attempts to get a Sproles-type back in the draft "just didn't work out". This is the way the East Germans used to develop young athletes, by the way - "You vill be zee pole vaulter" - and we'll leave that comparison where it is.

Spending one of the Eagles' few late-round picks here isn't ideal, but it's worth it to get a guy who many expected to be the top tight end in the draft. Philadelphia chose to trade back up during the second round from 52 to 49. Free agent running back C.J. Anderson, coming off a 1,000-yard rushing season, has attracted interest from the Eagles per a source.

With their first pick of the NFL Draft's fourth round, they added Pitt cornerback Avonte Maddox at 125 overall. He will team with Zach Ertz and give the Eagles a potent "Tiger" package.

Tornado watch for most of central Kansas until late Tuesday night
The threat for severe storms will likely be in the central and southern Plains, perhaps extending into the lower Missouri Valley. For the past week, conditions have been mostly quiet across Central Illinois, which has meant mostly dry weather.

Mailata, who EPSN described as the Eagles' "most interesting pick", has never played gridiron but what he does have is size and, more importantly, speed.

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

The Eagles traded to pick No. 49 to grab the 6-foot-5, 256-pound tight end, giving up picks in the second and fifth rounds to move up from the 52nd pick to grab the Jackrabbit. Maybe it's not on the same level as using a first-round pick on a 26-year-old Canadian firefighter - of course, who would do that? - but there are some reaches and some wishful thinking here and there. He has experience at guard and tackle and the Eagles, who announced him as the latter, will likely experiment with him at both. "The ever-presence of a man, out of nowhere he would just pop up to see what I was doing".

And Gotsis actually played American Football growing up in Melbourne.

"I've watched him play a lot being from NDSU, kind of a hometown person nearly", Goedert said. "They wanted me to lose another 50 pounds but I couldn't because I was (at) 10 percent body fat".
