Jordan Matthews

I like Allen Robinson better. He has a lot more run after the catch ability.

 

Robinson looks like a threat to take it the distance every time he touches the ball. Add that with his size, production, athleticism, and speed hnnnggg

Watkins is m pipe dream, Benjamin is my second favorite and then it's Mathews/Robinson. I'd be thrilled with any of them and I'd LOVE to get Abbrederis later too. He reminds me a lot of Eddleman, lunch pale kid who will outwork and out will everyone he plays against. Great slot guy you could play outside as well.

From what I've heard or seen he's been struggling at the senior bowl thus far & has been very unimpressive. Good to see he's a student of the game though perfect guy to put around Smith & Proel

Part of Matthews being a quick study is because of him having a chip on his shoulder, he said. It’s something he has carried since high school, and even as he became the SEC’s all-time leader in receptions, it remains on his shoulder.

It’s an attribute he knows is common with a certain Panthers receiver.

“I don’t think, I know Steve Smith is one of the greatest to ever play the game. Steve probably has the biggest chip on his shoulder of any player in the NFL, and that’s evident in the way he carries himself, the way he plays,” said Matthews, who added it’d be an honor to play beside Smith.

“It’s an aggression but he channels it to the right moments, and I’ve got all the respect in the world for a guy like Steve Smith.”

Fap.

All we do is bitch about not having an heir for Steve Smith. This sounds like if he worked with Smitty and Proehl he'd really soak it all in and shine. Moose had a 15 TD 1500 yard season here (or close) and wasn't a burner. No reason why this kid couldn't put up those numbers learning from two greats daily.

Jarrett had all the talent in the world and gave zero fugs. This guy seems to have his head on straight to succeed.

I finally think we have a good problem to have. This draft has some clear cut receiving talent. Robinson, Mathews , Watkins, Benjamin and Evans as a otential first round pick for us.

Right now for our needs I would rank them

Watkins

Evans

Benjamin

Robinson

Mathews

Despite where I rank Mathews I believe he will end up being better than at least two of the guys above him. Something about the Florida State kid screams potential bust to me. The other guys, in my opinion, will be really good. I just think Jordan will out work a few of them and out perform them. You don't become the SEC leader in receiving by chance. This guy didn't have any other weapons on offense yet he averaged over 1100 yards in 12 games his last two seasons.

What are Jonathan Jones scouting qualifications?

He is saying what everyone is saying. Jordan Matthews has had an awful week of practice.

Don't distort the facts to back an agenda.

I will hold judgment until after the Combine. To this point I still am on Fla. St. Benjamin bandwagon.

Barring something, Bejamin's stock is likely going to skyrocket. I don't think we're even close to being able to draft him.

He has elite #1 potential, something most of the prospects in this WR crop don't have.

I will say that Matthews is really saying a lot of things that make me smile!  His first day was rough, but I've read that he made some great strides later, and some good plays.  

 

As far as the big question:  Can he be a number 1?  That's hard.  While he may not have off the chart tools, can he make up for that in the ability to "ball" (please forgive that)?  The league has a ton of guys who are primary receivers who didn't have the "tools" comming out, but who became very good.  You also have your guys like Calvin Johnson, D. Thomas in Denver (can't spell first name), who have all the physical ability in the world.  The thing is, you never know what a rookie WR is going to turn out to be until they play against pros.

 

For Matthews, I love the chip, the study skills, and the fact that he does catch the ball well.  WRs are very difficult to project because while someone might look like a stud in college, they completely fail as a pro.  Then you get guys who project as marginal players who become fantastic football players for their team.

 

I hope the Panthers are able to find a guy who can catch TDs, move the chains, and make our team better.  That's all I want, but this Matthews kid sure looks interesting.

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

 

Now that is a vote of confidence.  

 

Of course, you were surprised when Marty Hurney drafted, (and drafting was his strength-second contracts is where he fell apart).  Who amongst us can say that we expected Hurney to draft yet another first-round RB (injured, this time) when we had needs at OT, DT, WR, etc, giving literal meaning to the term, "Double Trouble."  Who did not see the value in trading a first rounder to grab a smallish DE from Florida State in the second round?  Who expected the Gods to send Jimmy Clausen to us, slipping by QB-starved Kansas City and Minnesota not once, but twice? Morons!  Then who expected us to bolster our WR corps by trading away a second rounder to draft a small-school running QB in the third round?  The man was a jeanyus or something.

 

It sure is nice to feel that Gettlemen will find talent throughout the draft.  I have the same opinion about free agency.  I want to see what he does there.  If Hardy walks, then it is for the best.  I will not cry about it.
