The Eagles didn’t select a running back during the first two days of the NFL draft despite an obvious need at the position.
They traded out of the first round and into the second round, where they drafted tight end Dallas Goedert, who fills another need.
When first-round prospect Derrius Guice was drafted in the second round, No. 59 overall by the Redskins late Friday, reports surfaced that Eagles executive Howie Roseman had been in an argument with Guice during the LSU product’s visit to the NovaCare Complex. Roseman denied it, Bob Grotz of the Delaware County Times reports.
“There was no altercation,” Roseman said. “There was no altercation here, in this building, that any of us are aware of. I don’t know where that report came from but I can speak for everyone in here and nothing like that happened here in Philadelphia.”
Asked if an altercation or something similar ensued outside the building, for example the scouting combine, Roseman dug in his heels.
“There was no altercation,” Roseman said. “When you hear the word altercation it sounds like … yelling and screaming. I mean, I don’t know that I’ve ever been in a room where a player has yelled at anyone.”
Said Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, “I didn’t hear of anything.”
