Just eight spots after fellow Pitt defensive back Jordan Whitehead was selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Avonte Maddox joined the National Football League ranks when the Philadelphia Eagles snagged him in the fourth round with the 125th overall pick. This is an excellent fit for both parties. Pittsburgh cornerback Avonte Maddox breaks up a pass intended for Penn State tight end Mike Gesicki during the Penn State-Pitt game in September 2016.
There is no reason why Goedert shouldn't see decent targets right out of the gate. Dallas Goedert caught 72 passes for 1,111 yards last season and had 198 catches for 2,988 yards and 21 touchdowns in his career. Wentz added, "Get ready" and "We've got some business to do", to which Goedert replied, "I'm excited". He'll team with Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz to help Philadelphia's offense create mismatches.
Goedert said he's had some interaction with Wentz leading up to the draft with the two former Missouri Valley stars sharing the same Rep 1 Sports agency out of Irvine, Calif. Goedert said Wentz was one of the first people to send him a text message after Goedert got the call from the Eagles.
Goedert stands 6-foot-5, 260 pounds.
