Dallas Cowboys fans at the 2018 NFL Draft

With commissioner Roger Goodell ceding the stage to various NFL alumni for the announcement of picks on day two of the draft, former players from a number of teams took the opportunity to take shots at the Dallas Cowboys in their home stadium.

And nobody relished that chance more than former Philadelphia Eagles kicker David Akers.

Announcing the Eagles' selection with the 49th overall pick, Akers taunted Dallas over division rival Philadelphia's recent victory in Super Bowl LII in an epic speech.

"Hey Dallas, the last time you were in the Super Bowl, these draft picks weren't born," Akers bellowed amid deafening boos from Cowboys fans. 

The coup de grace came as Akers revealed the Eagles' pick - a prospect who shares a name with the Cowboys - tight end Dallas Goedert. Ouch.

David Akers.
Volume UP.
