Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni revealed Mailata, 24, would be the starting left tackle for the Eagles when the NFL season gets under way after beating out former first-round pick Andrew Dillard for the role.
“Jordan will be our starter,” Sirianni said on Tuesday.
“Jordan had a great camp, Andre had a great camp. Andre missed some time and during that time, the chemistry with the offensive line was able to build.
”It’s a good problem for us to have. We have two left tackles that can really play and can start.
