Philadelphia Eagles draft rugby player Jordan Mailata | Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"I can't put it into words that I could be playing an National Football League game soon".

Philadelphia is planning on starting him with the offensive line, though his future playing position isn't 100 percent decided.

The offensive tackle prospect (and extremely large human being) has never played organised football, but his rugby league highlights have gone viral.

For the moment, however, it is a little odd that in the last week we have learned a lot more about the South Sydney Rabbitohs than about the Philadelphia Eagles.

His physical attributes are impressive: "height 6'8" (2.03m), weight 345lbs (155kgs), as well as long arms (36in), and big hands (11in), ideal for keeping would-be sackers away from your quarterback.

Trump could turn a subpoena to his advantage
However, the strongest defense for Trump against any allegations of obstruction is that no investigations have been obstructed. Bush with a series of congressional inquiries, including the investigation into his firing of seven US attorneys.

Sweat was a combine freak, measuring at 6-foot-5 and weighing 253 pounds and running a 4.53-second 40-yard dash with a 39.5-inch vertical leap and 10-foot-4 broad jump. "Mailata, the raw rugby renegade from Down Under, was a worthy gamble for a confident team".

It was all on show in the NRL where to be honest - despite his speed and size - Mailata was club less. His workout went so well that IMG offered to train him as he prepared for this year's draft.

And that's how he ended up in the NFL. Mailata's agent, Chris Orr, chose to make a YouTube highlight tape to send to other rugby clubs but Mailata was only offered part-time contracts. Each day, he spent over four hours working out then another three hours studying film.

"I love this game", he said at Pitt's Pro Day. "The last three or four months have not been a walk in the park". If I get drafted, I get drafted.

The Eagles trade up from pick No. 250 to pick No. 233 to select Mailata.

The BBC reports that the fire began around 1.20am local time (4.20am GMT), and that over 100 firefighters attended the scene. Footage of the building collapsing has been shared online, showing huge flames and billowing black smoke.

'I will only be 21 years of age so I thought why not give it a try, I am still young'. But that didn't prevent him from being a durable player in college who was cleared by the Eagles' medical staff as someone who should be ready to roll right away. The key is that Stoutland determined that he was coachable.

For a punter the challenge is not so high - run on, kick the ball, run off.

And after initially serving as a supplemental piece, Adams looked like the crown jewel of the Irish's offensive backfield in the lead back role.

In announcing the Eagles' second round pick, Akers unleashed the kind of promo that someone from WWE would stand up and applaud. But Mailata know the risk.

"When I was in Carolina, we had eight guys, just roll them in and out, and the ability to keep those guys fresh is really a terrific thing".
