Jordan Matthews

Im seriously having issues creating threads. Keep getting page not found after submitting so im trying ways to go around it

 

Basically Charlotte Observer had an article that Jordan is a student of the game and been scouting his defensive opponents for the senior bowl and apparently his preparation works cause he's improving day to day at practice. Also according to NFL.com he stayed after practice with the QB to focus on redzone throws

I'm a HUGE Jordan Matthews fan.

 

He's another one of those kids that was born in Alabama and wanted an offer from the big state schools SO BAD but didn't get it and then showed out elsewhere proving to them that they made a mistake (like Demarcus Ware who went to Troy).

 

Kid is smart, big, a hard worker, and a great route runner.  His only drawback with regard to the pro game is lack of breakaway speed.

 

If we take him at #28 I'll be effin' THRILLED.

I think speed is an issue if you have average to weak route running or can't get off the line. Apparently route running is his best attribute and I haven't heard much about him having an issue getting off the line. Even Boldin and Fitzgerald ran a 4.7 DAMN lol. Crabtree ran the same Jordan did, 4.55. I'm more interested in his vertical and him catching the ball at the combine

I hate Vanderbilt with a burning passion, but this kid is next-level. 

I expect him to be a very successful WR in the league.

From the story...
 

 

Matthews, who’s playing on the South team, requested tape of the North’s cornerbacks to try to get an edge in the all-star game.

 

That's noteworthy.

I will not be convinced until I see a 3 minute youtube video of his most spectacular catches.

 

I found one 3 min vid but it doesn't include this year highlights. He surely has some impressive one handed catches though

 

actually

here's one just posted

Guy was already on my radar, but hearing that kind of thing puts him well ahead in my book.

I didn't want Alshon Jeffrey due to his speed.

I r idot.

I'd gladly take Jordan. Speed is the great equalizer but you can certainly succeed without it.

He's a natural.  Just something very complete and smooth about his game.  Love his route running.  Reminds me somewhere in between Keenan Allen and Boldin.
