Ever since the Philadelphia Eagles traded up to select freak

     Jordan Mailata in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL Draft Brandon Graham Jerseys 2019 , people have been asking: “Why not let this guy play with the ball in his hands?”After watching the Australian’s rugby league highlights, It’s not hard to see why the question is asked.To this point, the Eagles have been clear that they view Mailata as an offensive lineman. The rookie exclusively played at left tackle in the preseason. But does that mean Mailata will NEVER get a chance to see what he can do with the ball in his hands? Doug Pederson was asked about the possibility during his Wednesday press conference.OMG, Doug said “it’s not out of the question”! It’s totally going to happen now! Mailata’s the Eagles’ season-saving secret weapon!So Black Corey Clement Jerseys , not quite. Barring further offensive line injuries, Mailata isn’t even likely to be active for the rest of this season. He’s only suited up for one game thus far and he didn’t even play a single snap.Moving forward, Mailata will likely continue to be used as an offensive lineman. Why wouldn’t he when he showed intriguing potential a spot that’s way more valued than running back?The idea of Mailata carrying the ball and smashing dudes like he did in rugby league is fun to think about, no doubt. I wouldn’t mind testing it out next preseason. But I’ll believe it when I see it....RELATED READING: Jordan Mailata is just laughing it off Eagles tight end Zach Ertz had seven catches for 91 yards in last Sunday’s victory over the Giants and that’s the kind of productivity that the team has been able to take for granted this season.Ertz has 84 catches for 895 yards so far this season and both of those marks represent career highs for the six-year veteran. If he continues making plays at the same pace Corey Clement Jerseys 2019 , he’ll hit a lot more than personal milestones. Brian Westbrook’s franchise record of 90 catches in a season will almost certainly fall if Ertz remains healthy and he is on pace to set an NFL record for tight ends as well.Jason Witten set a record for receptions by a tight end in a single season with 110 in 2012, but Ertz’s average of over 7.6 catches per game would leave him with 122 for the year if it remains in place. As Jeff McLane of Philly.com points out, Ertz is also on pace for over 1,300 receiving yards and no tight end has ever had that many yards and 100 catches in the same season.“Well Black Jake Elliott Jerseys , he’s a big guy and he’s got excellent play strength, a really good catch radius and strong hands,” offensive coordinator Mike Groh said of Ertz at a Tuesday press conference. “So he can catch it away from his body, and even in those tight spaces like you talk about Jake Elliott Jerseys 2019 , he’s able to create a little bit more space for himself by using his body and his length.聽He’s got absolutely fantastic hands, so Carson has a lot of confidence in that and puts it in the right spot for him to be able to make a play.”Ertz may not wind up rewriting the record book in the final five weeks, but he’ll likely get every chance to do so unless the Eagles start doing something radically different on offense.
