Casey Matthews, LB, Oregon
Projection: 3rd-5th Round
Last Updated: February 2nd, 2011
Strengths: NFL family – Covers very well in the passing game – Tracks QB eyes – Effort player from sideline to sideline – Very high motor – Very instinctual, diagnoses plays early.
Weaknesses: Will miss some tackles in open space – Doesn’t have great straight-line speed – Could certainly add some bulk – Hasn’t shown the ability to shed blocks from bigger linemen.
