the All-Star break.
09 ottobre, 2018 [11:00]
The Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles used the NFL draft to add another playmaker Rasheem Green Color Rush Jersey , restock their depth chart and get a rugby star.

After using their only pick in the first two days to select South Dakota State tight end Dallas Goedert with the 52nd overall spot, the Eagles turned to defense in the fourth round Saturday. They took Pitt cornerback Avonte Maddox and Florida State defensive end Josh Sweat five picks apart. TCU offensive lineman Matt Pryor was picked in the sixth round and Philadelphia moved up 17 spots to draft Australian rugby player Jordan Mailata with No. 233.

Then the Eagles re-signed veteran running back and return specialist Darren Sproles, who tore an ACL and broke his forearm on the same play in Week 3 last season.

”Everybody in the building is excited to have Darren back,” said Howie Roseman, the Eagles executive vice president of football operations. ”He’s that kind of guy.”

Mailata, 6-foot-7, 346 pounds, is projected as an offensive tackle. He began to pursue a career in the NFL last year and trained in Florida the past few months.

”I knew if I made the decision, I’d be all in,” said Mailata, who looks dominant running with the ball and knocking tacklers over in highlight videos. ”Walking away from something I know very well to do something foreign was a big risk.”

Maddox, chosen Saturday at No. 125, played four seasons in college. Despite his size – 5-foot-9 and 184 pounds – Maddox is known for his tough, physical play. He had seven sacks along with eight interceptions over the past three years.

”This is a guy that fits in with our DB room,” said Joe Douglas, the Eagles vice president of player personnel. ”It’s a group of highly competitive guys Jaire Alexander Color Rush Jersey , and he’s going to blend in perfectly, and even stand out to a degree. Even though he’s not the biggest guy, he will attack and support.”

Sweat, 6-foot-5 and 251 pounds, was picked at No. 130. He had 14 sacks in three seasons and gives the Eagles even more depth on a deep defensive line.

Pryor, 6-foot-7 and 338 pounds, started 21 games at right guard and six at right tackle in his final two seasons.

Here are some other things to know about the Eagles’ draft:

SET UP FOR 2019

The Eagles added Baltimore’s second-round pick next year by trading out of the first round, and sent a 2019 seventh-round pick to New England to move up 17 spots to get Mailata. They have eight picks in 2019 plus they’ll likely get compensatory picks for losing free agents Trey Burton and Beau Allen.

READY TO PLAY

Maddox will compete for the nickel cornerback spot. Patrick Robinson, who had a pick-6 in the NFC championship game, left in free agency. Maddox also will get a chance to contribute as a returner.

”It can be anything on special teams,” Maddox said. ”And if they need me to play in the slot, I’ll try to do my best there. And if they need me to play outside, I’ll do my best there. Anything that they need me to do, I’ll do it.”

VALUE PICK

Sweat would’ve gone earlier in the draft if it weren’t for medical concerns going back to a knee injury suffered in high school.

”He was much higher rated than where we got him,” Roseman said. ”We have a lot of trust in our medical staff. Dr. (Peter) DeLuca has done a great job for us for a long time. When he tells us that the guy’s ready to go, we rely on them and we trust that.”

Sweat only missed three games and sat out a bowl game last year to prepare for the draft.

”I think without the injury hopefully it would have been different Authentic Orlando Brown Jr. Jersey ,” he said. ”I wouldn’t say frustrating. It’s been more motivating if anything.”

OVERLOADED D-LINE

The addition of Sweat plus free agents Michael Bennett and Haloti Ngata strengthens a line that already features Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, Tim Jernigan, Chris Long and Derek Barnett.

”That’s what we call `rich man problems,”’ Roseman said. ”We’re excited about that. That’s how we’re going to build this. We’re always going to put priority on the lines. You can never have too many.”

MULTI-TALENTED

Goedert, who will team with Pro Bowl tight end Zach Ertz to give the Eagles another weapon at the position, rides a unicycle in parades in his hometown, Britton, South Dakota. He said the skill helps him on the field.

”It helps with the balance for sure,” Goedert said. ”If you get hit a little bit on the legs, you can torque your body to stay upright. So I think the balance definitely plays a big factor.”

STILL NEED

Not a lot considering they are champions. Maybe some help on the offensive line.



A three-run sixth inning for the struggling Milwaukee Brewers against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw set up reliever Josh Hader’s return to the mound following an emotional week.

The embattled, contrite reliever received a warm ovation from the crowd. The Brewers finally ended up getting a win.

Christian Yelich’s tying homer off Kershaw opened the pivotal sixth, and Milwaukee stopped its seven-game losing streak by beating Los Angeles 4-2 on Saturday night.

”It was nice to snap that streak. I feel like you just need … one just to get some positive vibe back on the team,” Yelich said.

For Hader, it was his first appearance since the reliever’s racist and homophobic tweets surfaced during the All-Star Game. Hader, who has apologized for the years-old social media messages Customized Washington Redskins Jerseys , was applauded by the crowd after being introduced before the top of the seventh, with many fans at Miller Park standing.

The left-hander fanned four over two innings, striking out the side in the eighth.

”It means a lot, having the Milwaukee support, just knowing that they know my true character and just forgive me for my past, because that’s not who I am today,” Hader said.

Hader’s work highlighted five scoreless innings from the Milwaukee bullpen, though closer Corey Knebel provided a couple of nervous moments in the ninth.

Knebel allowed a two-out single to Logan Forsythe, bringing up the potential tying run in slugger Manny Machado.

Just the kind of big spot made for Machado, who was acquired from the Baltimore Orioles during the All-Star break. But Machado bounced out harmlessly to third to end the game, and Knebel got his 12th save.

The Brewers’ bats caught up to Kershaw in the sixth, when Yelich led off with a first-pitch homer for a 2-all tie. Another run scored on an error, and Keon Broxton added an RBI triple.

Kershaw (3-5) allowed seven hits and four runs in six innings, though only one was earned. He struck out five in taking his first loss since April 25, a span of eight starts.

”I pitched OK. I can think of two or three pitches I want back,” Kershaw said.

Chris Taylor drove in the Dodgers’ two runs with a bases-loaded single in the first.

HEY Womens Tom Pyatt Jersey , ROOKIE

Milwaukee rookie Corbin Burnes (1-0) picked up his first major league win with two scoreless innings, bailing starter Chase Anderson out of a bases-loaded, nobody-out jam in the fifth. Kershaw was thrown out at the plate trying to score on a wild pitch before Burnes struck out All-Star Matt Kemp and got cleanup hitter Max Muncy to fly out.

”It was a brilliant inning. It’s a tough inning to come into for just his third big league outing but he did a heck of a job,” manager Craig Counsell said.

DODGER D

It was an up-and-down night for the Dodgers on defense. Machado made a spectacular play at shortstop to hold the Brewers to one run in the sixth after they put runners on the corners with one out. Machado went deep into the hole to his right, took a couple of steps and threw off his back leg to first, with Cody Bellinger scooping the ball to just get the speedy Broxton.

Bellinger made a couple more good plays at first to prevent hits. But a run scored in the sixth when a high chopper by Manny Pina bounced under the glove of Muncy at third and into left field.

”We’ve got to be better for him,” Roberts said about the defensive lapse with Kershaw on the mound.

QUOTABLE

”Didn’t think I gave up a lot of hard contact tonight for the most part. There’s some good things in there, but you know, ultimately, we lost.” – Kershaw.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Dodgers: 3B Justin Turner (upper right leg) is scheduled to return to the lineup Sunday. He struck out as a pinch hitter in the eighth.

Brewers: OF-1B Ryan Braun went 1 for 3 and scored two runs in his return from a stint on the 10-day disabled list for a strained back. … OF-1B Eric Thames (right hamstring) is getting closer to returning after taking batting practice for a third straight day and running, Counsell said.

UP NEXT

Dodgers: Start a left-hander for the third straight game, with Alex Wood (5-5) taking the hill for the first time after the All-Star break.

Brewers: LHP Brent Suter (8-6) makes his first career start against the Dodgers.
