Brian Baldinger has loved Eagles LT Jordan Mailata since he was drafted as a rugby player back in 2018.
Now, three years later, Baldy says Mailata could be the most “dominant” left tackle in the league.
Baldy also discusses the Eagles offensive line as a whole as well as the defensive line, what he is seeing from Jalen Hurts and where he needs to improve, plus some more NFL talk from around the league with one of the best minds in Football.
This is The National Football Show with Dan Sileo across the JAKIB Media Sports.
“When it came to the starting position, I had no idea how this was going to play out,” Mailata told the Eagles web site.
“The only thing I knew for sure was whether it was going to be me or Andre, I was going to prepare myself as a starter. That was my one biggest things from last year that I needed to work on was how to prepare as a starter and train like a starter and live that way of life. My focus was never on who was going to be the starter, but rather the process of being a starter, how to be a starter, not who’s going to be. It’s not going to change anything. Andre is a hell of an athlete and a player and we’re going to sharpen each other to keep pushing each other every day.
“My focus is on Week 1, preparing for Week 1. Haven’t had time to really reflect on the journey.”
