As we count down the days together, Bleeding Green Nation will be previewing every position on the Eagles roster. We continue today by taking a look at the tight end position. Previously: Quarterback Running back Wide receiver.THE PLAYERSDALLAS GOEDERTFor the first time since being selected in the 2018 NFL Draft, Goedert will enter an Eagles season as the teams undisputed top tight end. No more splitting time with Zach Ertz.Not surprisingly, Goedert thrived following Ertzs departure. From our 2021 season review:Goederts stats from nine games played after the Ertz departure: 62 targets, 44 receptions, 636 yards
, two touchdowns. Extrapolate that pace over the course of a 17-game season and Goedert would be looking at 117 targets for 83 receptions, 1, 202 yards, and about four touchdowns. To put those numbers in context
, realize that Mark Andrews led all tight ends in receiving yards with 1, 361 while Travis Kelce was second with 1, 125.Goedert is poised to post big numbers this year.
