Chris Trapasso: Big-bodied matchup nightmare tight end with some in-line blocking experience. Tracks ball wonderfully down the field and can make catches with coverage draped on him. Build up speed and good but not great agility.
Jamey Eisenberg: This wasn't the ideal landing spot for Goedert for his Fantasy value since the Eagles have a star ahead of him on the depth chart with Zach Ertz. Goedert can fill the Trey Burton role, but he should not be selected in the majority of re-draft leagues. In dynasty leagues, Goedert is worth a third-round pick in rookie-only drafts.
R.J. White: Recruited out of Britton, South Dakota, Goedert redshirted in 2013 before seeing limited work in 2014 as a freshman, then catching 26 balls for 484 yards and three TDs as a sophomore. His breakout came in 2016, when the junior snagged 92 passes for 1,293 yards and 11 touchdowns, earning him unanimous FCS All-America honors. His biggest performance game against Western Illinois, when Goedert tallied 204 yards and four TDs on eight receptions in one game.
Goedert turned in a strong senior season for the Jackrabbits, catching 72 passes for 1,111 yards and seven touchdowns while again being named a unanimous FCS All-American. He posted two 11-receptions games as a senior and topped 100 yards six times, including in four straight games in the middle of the year.
