2018 NFL Draft: Eagles select rugby beast in seventh round

Pick is in, for the sixth round, 233rd overall, Day 3.

Six picks before the end of the NFL Draft, then trading up to No. 233, in the seventh round, the Philadelphia Eagles select…Jordan Mailata.

Mailata is a 346 lb, 6’7″ Autralian rugby (beast) player, that will serve as a tackle for the defending Super Bowl champs’ roster. Mailata was graded 5.00 at the NFL Combine, in late February.

Through the trade up in the seventh round, it will cost the Eagles their 250th overall pick this draft, and their seventh round pick in 2019 draft, to the New England Patriots.
