Jordan Mailata

Recommended Posts

The latest code-switcher to make headlines, Jordan Mailata was on the Rabbitohs' books, but has just been picked in the draft by the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles. A big lad, at nearly 25 stone, but has never played American Football in his life. I wonder how he'll go?

I read an interview with Michael Maguire on this lad a few weeks ago. Going from memory, he said his body shape wasn't quite right for RL, due to the constant back and forth for defence and attack. I think it was Maguire that recommended him try the NFL route, due to his explosive power and speed.

Found it:

I once asked Wikipedia to explain how the nfl draft works and after reading the section on compensatory drafts I opted for some slightly easier reading material such as einsteins theory of relativity,followed by quantum mechanics and transpolar mass distortion
