I did not have a problem with any of the 3rd day picks, including Maddox.

The Eagles have been burned quite a bit by small, shifty slot CBs. Maddox has both speed and quickness but lacks size. Supposedly he is feisty. I suppose teams will use picks and bunch formations against him to try to create mismatches.

I liked the combination of Pryor and Mailata. The latter provides competition for Prior who might lack motivation.

Also don't rule out Mailata as a blocking TE down the road. The Eagles occasionally bring in an extra O Lineman. In this case it would be a guy with ability to catch a ball and run in traffic after catch.

Compare Mailata's Pro Day numbers to the Big V's numbers from mockdraftable.

Measurable.........Measurement.....%tile......Mailata
Height................6' 6"..................60.........6-8
Weight...............320 lbs...............67.........345
Arm Length.........34¼".................54.........35.5
Hand Size...........10⅝".................85..........11
40 Yard Dash........5.26s...............54..........5.1
Vertical Jump........29"..................63..........28
Broad Jump..........113"................94......... 106
3-Cone Drill.........8.26s.................9............8
20 Yard Shuttle......5s...................10..........4.7
Bench Press...........23 reps............41..........22

I do this type of analysis most years and a few things stand out:

Sweat was a real nice value find in round four.

Maddox, Pryor and Mailata were big reaches in their draft slots.
