David Akers taunts Cowboys fans before announcing Eagles' second-round pick

The Philadelphia Eagles traded up in front of the Dallas Cowboys in order to select former South Dakota State tight end Dallas Goedert with the 49th pick in the 2018 National Football League draft.

Addressing Dallas directly Akers said: "The last time you were in the Super Bowl, these draft picks weren't even BORN!" he yelled in glee. Goedert (6'5/256) was a two-time first-team FCS All-American, logging a career 198/2,988/15.1/21 receiving line and leading all draft-eligible tight ends in PFF's yards per route run (2.94) in 2017.

The Eagles added another weapon into their offensive arsenal when they traded up with the Colts in order to draft South Dakota State tight end Dallas Goedert. Howie Roseman and Joe Douglas chose to trade up to take the guy they want.

Former Philadelphia Eagles kicker David Akers went on an epic rant during the second round of the NFL Draft. He's a truly explosive player who does a lot of damage after the catch.

Though I highly doubt anyone could have predicted exactly how the night would have turned out when the opening bell was rung at 7 pm eastern, as this year's draft has certainly delivered from a drama standpoint, all four teams in the division definitely got better, much to the chagrin of Philly fans.

With Goedert, he replaces Trey Burton, who left the Eagles earlier in the offseason in free agency to join the Chicago Bears. It didn't take long for him to be picked on the second day.
