Think he would be a good pick at 28

It's Panthers related.

 

And it's Panthers post-season.

You guys should probably look at Jonathan Jones tweets about him at the Senior Bowl. Apparently not looking good

I would prefer Pryor at the 28th but if Matthews is available, we should grab him

 

Could be a huge steal for years to come

the simulations that I've been running have him listed as top 20, and usually going to KC.  Sometimes I get him, but rarely.

 

the thing that sucks is the 3rd.  By the time I get there, the top 10-15 guys on the board are always DT, RB and QB.  If we go BPA, then it will likely be someone to bolster a current strength.

Expect a lot of things to change after free agency.

And Dwayne Jarrett.

 

Jarrett had the talent but just didn't put in the work. Even smitty said on the radio that he was one of the smoothest pass catchers he's ever seen but he would fall asleep in meetings and stuff like that.

His football speed looked good to me on both the end-around and screen pass plays he took to the house against the Vols.

 

He wasn't running away from anyone but they weren't catching him either.

 

NFL speed is on a whole different level, but I don't see where this kid's speed is a liability... he's "fast enough".

 

The thing the really set him apart in my mind is his desire and willingness to prepare, even for a game like the senior bowl where it's not expected. That kind of work ethic is what really sets the great ones apart from everyone else.

I have the sneaky suspicion that he could be an all pro level wr at the end of they just because of his work ethic and preparation.

From today.... @jjones9: I've been underwhelmed by Jordan Matthews today. He should be dominating but instead he's playing to level of DBs

From yesterday.... @PSchrags: 3. Jordan Matthews (Vandy WR) looked very fluid out there. One scout said early 2nd round is fair assessment.

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

 

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

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.


Alshon ran a 4.4 in the combine or at his proday.

He just had that fat body his last season at SC and that picture of him in the locker room dammed his top 15 pre draft buzz.
