GOLD COAST Brandon Brooks Jersey , Australia (AP) — He can laugh about it now, the concept of being “too big” that led him on this extraordinary journey to the Philadelphia Eagles.Jordan Mailata has made the cut for the Super Bowl champions’ 53-man roster less than a year after first putting on a helmet and is ready to start his rookie season.Mailata grew up in western Sydney, dreaming of making his living in Australia’s National Rugby League. He got close, too, with his work ethic and his pure bulk impressing the senior coaches at South Sydney, the NRL club owned by the actor Russell Crowe.But, somehow, a theory that at 6-foot-8 and more than 350 pounds Mailata was too big for a game that relies so heavily on aerobic fitness became a potential roadblock to a lucrative contact. So his agent put together a highlight video of this human wrecking ball rampaging through defenses and making crunching tackles in the NRL’s under-20 competition and sent it around.The video was designed, Mailata said, “to help generate interest in the rugby universe.”It did way more than that.“At the same time it generated attention in the NFL,” he said. “I was quite lucky when I reached the crossroad in my life, the NFL pathway reached out to me as another avenue to pursue. That’s what it came down to.”Navigating the NFL’s International Pathway program and the draft and then making the Eagles’ roster has been, as the 21-year-old offensive tackle put it , “surreal.”A couple of nights before the Eagles were scheduled to open the season against Atlanta, Mailata was doing a telephone conference with reporters in Australia, where his story is making news even as the rugby league season heads into the playoffs. It was Wednesday morning in Sydney, and Mailata prefaced his response to the first question: “Good to hear another Aussie on the phone.”And with that, he may have single-handedly increased the NFL’s audience Down Under.Mailata didn’t play football high school or college and wasn’t even thinking about the game in his late teens. He had two heart operations in 2015 which interrupted his junior rugby league progress, but has been given the all-clear. All in all, it has been a very non-conventional approach to the NFL.“I guess it’s every American football player’s dream to be part of an NFL team and I’m quite lucky to be living my own dreams and theirs,” Mailata said.While being so big was a benefit in short bursts, it was also the concern for top-flight rugby league coaches who figured Mailata would lack endurance.Michael Maguire guided South Sydney to a drought-breaking NRL title in 2014 and remained as coach of the Rabbitohs until last year, when he crossed paths with Mailata. He saw plenty of character in Mailata, but realized as soon as reports filtered back about him being interested in the NFL scouting combine that the young player was better suited to the American game.“He’s huge, obviously, but he’s also explosive out of the blocks and agile for a man his size Womens Timmy Jernigan Jersey ,” Maguire wrote in an article for PlayersVoice. “Whereas the repeat efforts required in rugby league weren’t suited to a bloke of his genetics, the explosiveness needed in the NFL definitely is.“Short bursts of maximum effort. That’s a great match for him.”Mailata is confident he can handle the physical elements of the NFL. The tactical and technical side of the game is his focus right now, and he’s dedicated to learning the playbook.The Eagles list Mailata at 6-foot-8 and 346 pounds, so he’s big but not the biggest player in the league. He would have been the biggest player in the NRL, and that would have made him a big target for defenders.“I didn’t feel I was too big to play. It wasn’t a self-proclaimed label I gave myself — it was something I was told,” he said. “There were a lot of second-grade contracts up for grabs. Personally, I wanted a full-time contract so I could develop.“Making the decision to transition was a shot I was willing to take once I was labeled too big to play rugby,” he added. “I laugh at it now.”NFL Power Rankings 2018: Week 2 Edition Week 1 of the 2018 NFL regular season schedule is in the books. Now it’s time to see where all 32 teams rank. For reference purposes, here is a link to last week’s NFL Power Rankings.BLG’S WEEK 2 NFL POWER RANKINGS1 - Philadelphia Eagles (Last Week: 1) - The reigning Super Bowl champions are still on top after managing to defeat Atlanta for the second time in 2018. The Eagles’ offense is off to a slow start with Nick Foles under center but Philadelphia’s defense is looking pretty good. It appears Carson Wentz’s return might soon be on the horizon. 2 - New England Patriots (LW: 2) - The reigning Super Bowl losers look poised to maintain their dominance in the AFC East. 3 - Green Bay Packers (LW: 3) - In the comments of last week’s rankings, some questioned why the Packers were ranked so high. Still have any questions after watching Aaron Rodgers’ comeback performance against Chicago? 4 - Minnesota Vikings (LW: 6) - The Vikings’ defense looked much improved from their last meaningful outing back in January. 38-7. 5 - Los Angeles Rams (LW: 9) - The Rams took care of a bad Oakland team. 6 - Kansas City Chiefs (LW: 10) - Pat Mahomes to Tyreek Hill figures to be a pretty lethal connection. No surprise to see Andy Reid has the Chiefs looking like a strong regular season team once again.7 - Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 7) - The Jags weren’t overly impressive in their five-point win over the G-Men but they still held on for the W. Blake Bortles being bad prevents me from moving this team up. 8 - New Orleans Saints (LW: 3) - The Saints’ defense was horrible for years before it improved last season. Is New Orleans regressing back to the mean? It’s too early to say for sure, of course, but allowing 48 points at home to the Bucs certainly isn’t a good start. On the bright side, this team can still score a ton of points. 9 - Atlanta Falcons (LW: 5) - Steve Sarkisian is going to be on the hot seat if Atlanta’s offensive issues don’t get fixed. 10 - Carolina Panthers (LW: 12) - The Panthers got an important win but they also suffered some key injuries with veteran tight end Greg Olsen and starting right tackle Daryl Williams having to leave the game early. 11 - Baltimore Ravens (LW: 17) - Baltimore basically got to play a sixth preseason game. They absolutely demolished a bad Bills team. Joe Flacco looked much better than he has in a long time. 12 - Washington Redskins (LW: 14) - Although they only beat a bad Arizona team Stefen Wisniewski Jersey , Washington clearly looks like the second best squad in the NFC East. 13 - Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 8) - The Stillers almost lost to a team that was 1-31 in their last two seasons. Add in the Le’Veon Bell drama and Pittsburgh is not off to a good start. 14 - Los Angeles Chargers (LW: 11) - The Bolts had a chance to make an early statement that they’re the best team in the AFC West. They did not make that statement. In fairness, they had to play another road game at home.15 - San Francisco 49ers (LW: 13) - Jimmy Garoppolo is no longer undefeated as a starting quarterback. Jimmy G threw three interceptions in the 49ers’ first game of the season. San Francisco was facing a tough opponent but maybe it’s time to slow down the San Fran hype. 16 - Denver Broncos (LW: 22) - Case Keenum threw three interceptions but he also threw three touchdowns and it was enough to allow the Broncos to get a three-point win at home. 17 - Tampa Bay Buccaners (LW: 29) - Heading into the season, the Bucs seemed like a sure-fire bottom five team. Maybe they still end up there but they certainly didn’t look bad in Week 1. Ryan Fitzpatrick helped his team drop 48 points in New Orleans. Will Fitz come crashing back to Earth against Philadelphia’s defense? We’ll soon see.18 - New York Jets (LW: 25) - Sam Darnold showed the makings of a franchise quarterback during the Jets’ trouncing of Detroit on Monday Night Football. Second best team in the AFC East, at worst.19 - Houston Texans (LW: 15) - Is Deshaun Watson truly as good as everyone thought he was last year? Against the Pats, he completed 50% of his attempts for a mere 176 yards and a 62.9 passer rating. 20 - Seattle Seahawks (LW: 18) - Seattle hasn’t completely fallen off a cliff but they’re just not the same team they were at their peak. 21 - Cincinnati Bengals (LW: 23) - Cincy came up with a big turnover late in the game to spoil the Colts’ comeback hopes on Sunday. 22 - Chicago Bears (LW: 21) - The Bears were looking pretty good in the first half against Green Bay. Khalil Mack was playing like a monster. Then Rodgers came back and things were different. I’m still pretty skeptical of Mitchell Trubisky, who averaged just 4.9 yards per attempt on Sunday night. 23 - Dallas Cowboys (LW: 19) - Dak Prescott hasn’t thrown a touchdown pass since Week 14 last season. He straight up looked bad against Carolina. You can try to blame his surrounding situation for his struggles but there were times when he was simply failing to throw accurate passes to wide open targets. 24 - Miami Dolphins (LW: 31) - Maybe the Dolphins are more mediocre than I originally gave them credit for. 25 - Tennessee Titans (LW: 20) - Marcus Mariota threw two interceptions before he got hurt and Blaine Gabbert had to come in. As much as it pains me to say, I think Mariota might just not be good. 26 - Indianapolis Colts (LW: 24) - Andrew Luck threw 53 passes in his first regular season start since 2016. Even though the Colts lost, I’d say that’s an encouraging sign moving forward. 27 - Cleveland Browns (LW: 32) - At 0-0-1, the Browns are off to their best start since their 2004 season. Seriously. 28 - New York Giants (LW: 26) - The Giants’ offensive line is still pretty trash. Eli Manning is also clearly washed. Never forget the G-Men passed on a potential franchise quarterback at No. 2 in order to take a running back. 29 - Oakland Raiders (LW: 27) - The Raiders really gave Jon Gruden a 10-year, $100 million contract. 30 - Detroit Lions (LW: 16) - Matt Patricia defenses have allowed 89 points in his last two games combined. To make matters worse, Matthew Stafford arguably played his worst game as a member of the Lions.31 - Arizona Cardinals (LW: 28) - This team is going nowhere fast with Sam Bradford. Total waste of resources. Just give Josh Rosen a chance to see what he can do. 32 - Buffalo Bills (LW: 30) - What the eff is this team even doing? They’re not even trying to win by starting Nathan Peterman.
