Jordan Mailata on Journey From Rugby to NFL, Jalen Hurts Dynamic and Greatest Australians | Ep 62
92%ers we are back with a special guest episode of New Heights presented by our friends at Experian and the all-new Experian Debit Card and Digital checking account!
In this episode, we’re joined by Jason’s teammate Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Jordan Mailata to talk about the new Eagles Christmas album (2:27), and the guys also revisit a not-dumb question about rugby players in the NFL utilizing Jordan’s rugby expertise (12:29).
Jordan also shares more about his path from Rugby League to the NFL, including his first exposure to the NFL, how he chose his position, how NFL scouts found him, and where he first started training to play football (24:45).
Travis and Jason then ask Jordan about the lead-up to his NFL Draft experience, how he felt when he was selected by the Eagles in the seventh round, and who he spoke to first within the organization (38:18).
Jordan also talks about the culture shock that happened upon his move from Australia to Philadelphia (45:52), his first days with the Eagles (50:54), and his “Welcome to the NFL” moment (59:27).
Jason and Jordan get into the 2023 Eagles team, highlighting their roles in the “Brotherly Shove” play (1:04:20) and Jordan’s relationship with quarterback Jalen Hurts (1:11:04).
Lastly, Jordan gives his Mt. Rushmore of the Greatest Australians of All-Time (1:15:21), Jason tries Australian candy (1:34:26) and the guys ask Jordan a series of rapid-fire questions, covering topics like how many toes Jordan has and his time on “The Masked Singer” (1:22:25).
We will be back on Wednesday to recap our Week 9 games, Travis’ time in Germany, and all the other biggest storylines happening around the league.
