A breakdown of the Philadelphia Eagles 2018 draft class and its progress after three weeks of training camp:
Dallas Goedert, TE, second round: Goedert has been one of the real bright spots of camp. He has made the transition well from South Dakota State to this point, showing off the athleticism and playmaking ability that drew the Eagles to him. His body type and movement are so similar to Zach Ertz's, it's hard to tell them apart on the field. Goedert should see playing time immediately.
Avonte Maddox, CB, fourth round: He's been steadily climbing up the depth chart and ran with the first unit at slot corner both in the preseason game against the New England Patriots and in the week of practice leading up to it. He did yield a touchdown in the game. Maddox is not the biggest corner in the world (5-foot-9, 184 pounds), but he plays with an edge and has good coverage skills. He's competing with Sidney Jones and others for the starting nickel position.
Josh Sweat, DE, fourth round: He was once touted as "[Jadeveon] Clowney Jr.," and you can see why: He has a long, athletic frame and is explosive off the edge. A serious knee injury suffered in high school lowered his draft value, and he still wears a large brace around his left leg, but Sweat has been looking good physically so far. He's been running with the second team for the most part and is trying to secure a role on a deep defensive line.
Matt Pryor, OL, sixth round: Pryor has been one of the biggest surprises of the summer. He has opened plenty of eyes with his quality of play, both in one-on-one and team drills, working primarily at guard. Game action is the big test, but it appears the Eagles have added to an already deep offensive line.
Jordan Mailata, OT, seventh round: The former Australian Rugby League player is going through the growing pains that you might expect from someone brand new to the sport of football. He has moments, and days, that are humbling. There are also times when it clicks and you can see the ability in his 6-foot-8, 346-pound frame rise to the surface. A year on the practice squad could do him wonders.
