The Super Bowl champions had only one pick in the first two days of the draft after trading out of the first round.

Jay Ajayi, acquired in a trade with the Miami Dolphins midseason a year ago, will be expected to serve as Philadelphia's top back.

Clement, who grew up in nearby Glassboro, scored six touchdowns during the season, then caught 10 passes for 139 yards in a touchdown in the Eagles' 41-33 victory over New England in Super Bowl LII.

The protest is scheduled to end on May 15, which Palestinians call Nakba (catastrophe). Marchers are demanding the right to return to their homes seized by Israel in 1948.

When the Giants selected their third round picks on Friday night - linebacker Lorenzo Carter and defensive tackle B.J. Hill - they did so with the mindset of using rotational players who will help keep starters fresh on the field, which Giants general manager Dave Gettleman alluded to after the picks were made. Are they credited for "drafting" Ajayi in the fourth round?

Goedert is a player that can be used across the formation. They also grabbed an Australian NRL rugby player in OT Jordan Mailata in the seventh round as a flier. That means the Eagles now have Alshon Jeffery, Zach Ertz, Nelson Agholor, Mike Wallace, and Goedert as their main passing targets. Clearly, they thought Maddox - who could have gone much higher if his 5-9 stature didn't make him a gamble to project as an outside corner - was a surer bet as an impact player than the guys they might have reached for at those other positions.

Lea Michele is bride-to-be
The pair had been friends for years but became romantically involved last summer. Lea has since paid tribute to Corey on social media every year on that date.

The rugby player was announced as an offensive tackle and trained with the same coach that helped German wide receiver Moritz Boehringer prepare for National Football League workouts. "The size, speed and talent is there for him to succeed as a very good combo tight end if he works and plays with a little more urgency".

The Eagles will likely look to lean on him in the special teams as a secondary option in the offense where he could be a change-of-pace running back that has great speed that could allow for him to remain a game-changer.

Maddox helped his draft stock with an explosive showing at the National Football League draft combine, where he ran a 40-yard dash time of 4.39 - the seventh fastest among all defensive backs.
