You might be surprised to hear the Eagles gave away two seventh-round draft picks to get a guy who has never played American football.
But, when you see the 6-foot-8, 346-pounder run, cut, and knock the snot outta people, you might understand.
Mailata ran a 5.12 40-yard dash and a 4.67 short shuttle. He’s also just 20 years old.
The Eagles moved up 17 spots to the No. 233 pick, which they acquired from New England in exchange for the 250th pick and a 2019 7th-round pick.
