Scouting Report
Bloodlines aren't usually much of a measure of NFL success, but being related to the greatest receiver in history can't be anything but a positive. Being Jerry Rice's second cousin is far from Matthews' only attractive quality, though. He left Vanderbilt as the SEC's all-time leader in receptions (262) and receiving yards (3,759) and set a conference record with 112 catches in 2013, earning first-team All-SEC honors for the second straight season. His 1,477 yards as a senior are the third-highest ever by an SEC receiver. Those accomplishments are made more impressive considering Matthews worked with four quarterbacks each of the past two years and played against the best competition in the country. With good size and a very wide catching radius, Matthews possesses many of the tools that suggest he will be a successful receiver at the next level. He is a detailed and reliable route runner with enough speed to make all the plays in the NFL. Expected to come off the board in the second round, Matthews' strong showing at the NFL combine should help his stock and could be enough to push him into the first round. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds and did 21 reps in the bench press, tied for second-most among wide receivers. A hard worker with excellent character, Matthews watched tape of the cornerbacks he was going to face at the Senior Bowl and stayed after practice to get extra reps in with quarterback Derek Carr. Matthews presents solid value with little risk and projects as an ideal No. 2 receiver.
