Draft 2018

Pick No.233

Selected By: Philadelphia Eagles

Round: 7

Pick (Overall): 15 (233)

Pick Analysis: Mailata was a professional rugby player in Sydney, Australia before coming to the United States in January of this year to try his hand at American football. The 20-year-old Samoan has been training hard to learn how to use his massive but athletic frame (6-foot-8, 345 pounds) as an offensive lineman. His work at IMG Academy in Florida paid off with an excellent pro day (5.12 40-yard-dash, 4.67 short shuttle, 22 bench press reps) attended by all 32 teams, as well as several team visits.
