Eagles News: Dallas Goedert is PFF’s fifth highest graded tight end since 2018

 

Even without a featured role in the Eagles’ offense, Dallas Goedert is a top tight end in the NFL - PFF
Goedert and the reigning PFF Stephenson Award winner (Kittle) are the only two players to show up in the top 10 for both receiving grade and run-blocking grade at the position, highlighted in the plot above. Kittle is in his own tier with top-three marks in each metric, but that shouldn’t take anything away from how well Goedert has played in both areas to start his career. If you look at the entire picture, he has the fifth-highest PFF grade of any tight end since 2018, trailing only Kittle, Travis Kelce, Mark Andrews and Darren Waller. Noticeably behind Goedert in the rankings is Ertz, whose 76.4 PFF grade ranks 10th at the position among 68 qualifiers. Strictly following the receiving numbers, you’re never going to make the argument that Goedert may actually already be a better football player than Ertz, but the grades say — at the very least — that it’s not a ridiculous argument. Even ignoring Goedert’s run-blocking advantage, he actually put up a higher receiving grade than Ertz in 2019 and edged him out in receiving yards per route run (1.70 vs. 1.67) on the year.

There's more within the article but I just wanted to post what's relevant to this particular subject.

You always take PFF grades with a pinch of salt, but there is no doubt in my mind that Goedert is a top 10 TE, with top 3 potential. He is a better blocker than Ertz.

We need to extend Goedert and I am not sure how we can extend Ertz as well. Can let this season play out, as they both have 2 years left, but sadly the best option might be to trade Ertz in 2021.

Absolutely yeah. Goedert is a top 10 TE with the potential to be top 5 if he was the regular starter. 

A big decision is looming.
