Eagles draft rugby player who has no football experience

2018 NFL Draft NFC East beefs

Finding immediate starters in the draft is hard for a team that won the Super Bowl the previous year and returned 21 out of 22 starters.

How did the Philadelphia Eagles do with their five new selections of rookies in the 2018 NFL Draft? The board fell perfectly for Roseman and the Eagles with quarterback Lamar Jackson still being available at pick No. 32. But after some patience during opening night, general manager Howie Roseman sold the 32nd overall pick for a second-rounder and some change.

An Australian rugby league player will join the Super Bowl champions for his debut NFL season. But Goedert certainly qualifies as that type of player. After that, he individually visited with eight teams, including the Eagles.

The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Goedert was the third tight end taken in this year's draft.

Maddox fits the competitive nature the Eagles have in their secondary.

NBC's Lack: Review of Lauer scandal near completion
Vester remained at Fox News until 2006. "In terms of Fox being number one", she said, "there's a good reason". It comes as former " Today " host Ann Curry said that she reported Lauer's conduct to NBC executives in 2012.

Maddox played press man-to-man in Pitt's defense that puts a premium on defensive backs being able to cover man-to-man.

Maddox consistently ranked as Pitt's most productive cover man over the next three years. You'd like your backups to be good enough to be 35, take away the three, 25 percent instead of 35.

Sweat is an explosive athlete as shown by his 4.53 second time in the 40-yard dash and his 39.5 inch vertical at the NFL Combine. The Eagles now have to extract it from him. According to Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia has agreed to a new deal to bring back veteran running back Darren Sproles next season for his 14th campaign. "Taking Florida State's Josh Sweat toward the end of the fourth round was a solid pick, but using one of their limited resources on a rugby player from Australia was a bit of a head-scratcher". "Just to see the excitement that not only Stout but also (assistant offensive line coach) Eugene (Chung) had about Jordan, it was palpable".

Jordan Mailata was picked in the NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles in Texas on Sunday morning - despite never playing American football before. The cost was a 2019 seventh round pick. He performed well in athletic testing at his pro day.
