He's struggled a bit this week at SB week.

I'm not sure he's a first rounder. I'm not done digging into him yet though.

I remember another guy who some teams passed on because his  speed wasn't anything special.

 

Blanking on the name...Jerry something... :unsure:

 

 

And his work ethic is what really set him apart.

big bodied guy with great hands, excellent catch radius

 

He and Cam would do work

 

Get Crief in the 3rd and we could have the greatest show on turf

I really like Matthews, Donte Moncrief, and Odell Beckham Jr.  The first 2 are better fits considering our needs.

Yes, he has had a few drops.  However, he has the biggest hands of all WRs.   He succeeded at Vandy when SEC competition did not have to do much more than shut him down....Jerry Rice's cousin.

I'm not a huge fan of JM but the big knock so far is breakaway speed.

 

On the surface this seems like a big drawback.  In reality, and dependent upon the character and mental toughness of the kid in question, things like breakaway speed and elite size can become things that the guy becomes dependent on.  I know.  Give me the biggest and the fastest.  Sometimes a guy without the best measurables is the one that hones his craft and becomes the guy with the knack, skill, and want to that gets it done.  Ricky Proehl comes to mind.  Wesley Walls is another.

 

I am a fan of finding this guy later in his career rather than hoping his nifty-ness translates to the league and drafting him.

 

Plus, we need a guy that can stretch the field.  I'm pretty sure that Gett has all the info he needs to make a decision and for the first time in a long time I am going into the draft with confidence.  

 

Surprise me on Christmas Morning Dave.  I'll not mail a wish list this year.  You know what I need better than I do.

Did not read the entire thread, but you guys know they (Matthews and Rice) are cousins?  Too eerie if you dont

Would be nice if we could get to 1sts and get Calvin Pryor and jordan Matthews

I'm not usually a grammar nazi, but really? To? That is a basic, basic elementary rule. It's two. We would want two picks, not to picks

First off the guy is not an elite athlete so lets get that out the way. showed up 6'2 at the senior bowl so hes not freakishly tall. Add that 2 the fact he has so drops and scouts note he couldn't separate from senior bowl cbs not nfl starters... I would not touch this guy in the first. I'd rather go with benjamin or worst case odell beckham jr. if he's there in the second maybe,but playing in the SEC doesnt make you a great player. People don't seem to understand system fits and this guy could just be that a system wr.

Want this kid bad with Robinson being my #2 favorite.

 

Just think with his work ethic+learning under smitty+being coached up by Proehl= by far hands down best #2 we've had (yes even more than an aging moose) and potential future #1.  Feel this kid is going to soak up what Smitty and Proehl are feeding him like a sponge.  

There are plenty of guys that come out every year that have super athletic ability (see our own Teddy Ginn).  But Work Ethic is B I G.  The reason Smitty is so good is not because his athletic ability but his work ethic. The dude comes to work every day, remember when Cam came in Smitty going and working with Cam outside of practice.  Smith out-Works his defenders.  

Something about Matthews, just feel he could be something special here.
