Lexington's David Akers trash talks Cowboys at the NFL Draft

"Look at what we did with Justin [Tuck] in the Super Bowl and what Brandon Graham did for the Eagles this past Super Bowl".

It seems like here Akers was mostly responding to former Cowboy Drew Pearson (who epically trolled the draft crowd in Philly last year) talking down on him to Clark, but the energy definitely carried over onto the stage.

Former Florida State safety Derwin James fell farther than expected Thursday in the first night of the National Football League draft before being chosen by the Chargers with the No. 17 overall pick.James became the fifth former Seminoles defensive back ever drafted in t. The fact that it happened in Philadelphia is better still.

Akers was relentlessly booed by Cowboys fans as he listed off the Philadelphia Eagles' accomplishments from last season, including their division title, a conference title and of course their Super Bowl success.

Roseman said the Eagles expected to get a player at 52 that would have made sense at 32, and he said Goedert is that guy. Specifically, the rivalry between the Cowboys and Eagles on Draft weekend is boiling over, and we can't get enough of it.

The fact that the Eagles moved up to get a big time prospect coupled with this epic announcement makes this whole situation even sweeter. The Philadelphia Eagles completely trolled the team and the fans by trading one spot ahead of them and taking the tight end with the 49th overall pick and his name just happens to be Dallas.

The Eagles next pick is in the fourth round at pick 125.

Minutes after the Eagles drafted him in the second round Friday, the South Dakota State University standout checked out social media and quickly discovered the depth of the rivalry.

Sweat is more potential than production.

Goedert said he models his game after those of the Eagles' Zach Ertz and the Chiefs' Travis Kelce, both Pro Bowl players.

Leonard was projected to be drafted in the seventh round or go as an undrafted free agent after only playing on the offensive line the past two years at FSU.
