Mailata measured just shy of 6-foot-8 and weighed 346 pounds. His arms measured a massive 35.5 inches. He was timed at 5.12 seconds in the 40-yard dash, which would have been good for seventh among tackle participants at the NFL Combine in February. He also excelled in the short shuttle with a time (4.67 seconds) that would have been among the top 10 at his position. Mailata put up 22 reps on the bench press.


I would rather see his BJ and VJ numbers

Not a strange one at all... prototypical Mick Munchak elite size/length/athlete for OL conversion. Villanueva, Matt Feiler, Mihalik. I knew they were interested, because they helped run his "pro day workout".

also very young... I think 19. compare his size/length/speed numbers to similarly aged Tyron Smith

6050 307 36.375 arms 31 reps 4.93 29 VJ 9'01" BJ 4.68 SS 7.47 3 cone
6080 346 35.5 arms 22 reps 5.12 4.67 SS

I know this wasn't your point, but this provides a perfect illustration of how different tackling is in rugby vs. football

Saw this last week on yahoo. I think he'd fit well as DLine. OLine would be a lot more technical. DLine, still a huge learning curve. American football is far different than Rugby. Maybe, 7th RND'er? JMO

Setting up for a UDFA. Can't believe anyone would spend a draft pick on him.
