Goedert to fly with Eagles

Eagles draft SDSU star in second round

Dallas Goedert, shown here catching a touchdown pass against Western Illinois on Oct. 1, 2016, during his junior season at South Dakota State, was selected 17th in the second round – 49th overall – by the defending Super Bowl-champion Philadelphia Eagles in the NFL Draft on Friday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. A Britton native, Goedert was a unanimous All-America selection as both a junior and senior. He posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, tallying 1,293 yards and 11 touchdowns on a single-season school-record 92 receptions as a junior, followed by 72 catches for 1,111 yards and seven scores as a senior in 2017. For his career, Goedert stands third in receptions at SDSU (198), fourth in receiving yards (2,988) and fifth in touchdown receptions (21). Prior to Goedert, the last SDSU player to be drafted was defensive end Danny Batten, who was taken in the sixth round by the Buffalo Bills in 2010.
