The Eagles took a seventh round flyer by selecting 6’8”, 346 pound Australian rugby player Jordan Mailata. Mailata is the definition of a project, but has all the physical tools NFL teams drool over.
His rugby highlights look like a high school kid playing against 3rd graders as he routinely bulldozes would-be tacklers while toting the rock. Mailata is projected as an offensive lineman, but he looks like a super sized Christian Okoye on the rugby pitch.
No one will be happier that Mailata is in the NFL than these poor blokes that won’t have to ‘tackle’ him anymore.
