Eagles Draft Australian Rugby Player Jordan Mailata in the Seventh Round

But when one of those really cool moments pop up, they're usually really great. Not including undrafted free agents, the Philadelphia Eagles are welcoming in five new rookies that they spent draft picks on this past weekend. Mailata was impressive enough that the Eagles moved up 17 picks in the seventh round and sent an additional seventh-round pick in 2019 in a trade with the Patriots to select the 6-8, 347-pound behemoth with 35.5-inch arms.

Philadelphia traded up 17 spots to select the 20-year-old, who is 6ft 8ins tall and weighs in at almost 25 stone, who they project to turn into an offensive tackle in his new sporting venture.

"He gave me the thumbs up at the end of the session and said I had an outstanding session, an outstanding workout", Mailata said. Mailata worked out for the league in Los Angeles last November and he was selected as one of six players to train at the IMG Academy for a chance to earn one of the spots in the International Pathway Program.

"Seeing two tight ends taken before me was hard", said Goedert, who believes he was the top tight end in the draft.

Operating with one pick in the first two days of the draft, the Eagles were destined to leave with a limited number of players we can expect to come in and plug holes immediately. "And if they need me to play in the slot, I'll try to do my best there".

He's the highest OR running back drafted since LaMichael James went 61st overall in 2012. Like Sanders, Sutton went to SMU, and over the years he sought his advice.

"Walking away from something I knew that well to go into something that was very foreign was a big risk to take", he explains.

Before making the move to football this year, Mailata was actually playing rugby for the South Sydney Rabbitohs, which is mostly notable because that's the team owned by actor Russell Crowe.

As a fourth-round pick to a quality Eagles' defense, Maddox should initially make his presence known on special teams.

He was onstage announcing the Eagles' 49th pick in the second round of the draft. Would the Eagles have still ended their weekend without drafting a safety had they been able to select in the third round, when six players who project as National Football League safeties flew off the board? They selected tight end Dallas Goedert with the 52nd overall pick. He said his goal is to make the 53-man roster and play in a regular-season game within the next three years for the defending Super Bowl champions.
