2018 NFL Draft Eagles trade back in deal with Ravens

Almost a year later, the defending Super Bowl champions selected Australian rugby player Jordan Mailata from Sydney with the 233rd overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. A November workout in Los Angeles led to Mailata being selected to train at IMG in Florida. It was a great deal for the Eagles because they added an early pick for the 2019 NFL Draft and they did not take a running back at No. 32, which would have been a mistake. "I think it's a hard first couple of days for people who put a lot of time and effort into the process, and you see that", Roseman said Saturday evening. He landed in the ideal spot which will allow him to work with offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland and his assistant Eugene Chung.

The former South Sydney Rabbitohs youngster stands at 6 foot 8 and weighs 156 kg.

Mailata has no experience in organized football. We all know the size thing, but he's probably the strongest guy pound-for-pound on the team. "Why not give it a try?" he told NFL Network.

"The 5'6" speedster earned Pro Bowl nods with the Philadelphia Eagles after the 2014 and 2015 seasons, and he scored another selection to the All-Star showcase after the team underwent a regime change prior to the 2016 campaign.

Pearson's pick announcement will go down in history as one of the funniest, best troll jobs in the history of the NFL Draft. Ebner had never played football in high school, but walked on with the Buckeyes.

"It was a lengthy discussion, over many different conversations", Ebner, a backup safety and special teams stalwart, said (via USA Rugby).

"To be honest, I'm not expecting to be drafted", Mailata said before the draft. "They wanted me to lose another 50 pounds but I couldn't because I was (at) 10 percent body fat".
