On a team that features Zach Ertz, one of the most feared tight ends in all of the NFL, a player like Dallas Goedert can easily go unrecognized. But, the former second-round pick out of South Dakota State proved how talented he is during offseason workouts, as he was voted the most impressive player by his teammates at the end of camp.

Goedert had 334 yards and four touchdowns in his first season with the Eagles, impressive numbers for someone who saw limited reps being behind Ertz. The young tight end has huge potential and could force the Eagles to put out two TE sets, especially when they have red zone opportunities.

Goedert's value is intriguing, because although the volume of passes may not be there, if his red zone impact is that significant, he could very well see an increase in touchdowns this fall and winter.

The Eagles hope Goedert's spring translates to a successful regular season, as his impact could prove to be the difference in what looks to be a NFC East battle with the Dallas Cowboys.
