Wentz, who attended SDSU rival North Dakota State, shares the same sports agency with Goedert. And when he competed against mostly Division I-A prospects at the Senior Bowl, according to Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas, Goedert more than held his own. All-in-all, Goedert is the total package at tight end.
After trading out of the first round Thursday night, the Eagles gave Indianapolis a second-round pick (No. 52) and fifth-round pick (No. 169) to get Goedert at No. 49. Goedert said he started to tear up after he received the call from the Eagles.
The Eagles traded into the No. 49 pick, one spot ahead of the Dallas Cowboys. The possibilities are endless, and the mismatches are too.
