BIO: Three-year starter at right guard. All-Conference selection as a junior.
POSITIVES: Explosive run-blocking lineman who is best in a small area. Quick off the snap, jolts opponents at the point then turns them off the line. Plays with a nasty disposition. Always looking for someone to hit and works well with teammates.
NEGATIVES: Lacks footwork in space, does not block with balance and cannot redirect to linebackers on the second level.
ANALYSIS: An arm wrestler who opens holes for the running game, Matua is a solid second-day pick who will flourish in a power running offense.
