PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles have selected Stanford tight end Zach Ertz in the second round of the NFL draft.
Ertz, a 6-foot-5, 249-pound All-American, was chosen Friday night with the 35th overall pick. The Eagles took offensive tackle Lane Johnson at No. 4 in the first round.
Ertz has drawn comparison to Dallas Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten. He's considered a physical blocker, tough runner and solid route-runner. Ertz had 112 catches for 1,434 yards and 15 touchdowns in 37 games at Stanford.
Once again, the Eagles passed on West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith, who dropped out of the first round.
