Positives: "Big receiver who has shown a lot of improvement. Uses his hands to get separation from opponents, makes the reception away from his frame, and is a huge target who can take a big hit and hold onto the ball. Wins out for the high throw, nicely adjusts to the errant pass, and looks the ball into his hands. Uses his frame to shield away defenders and protect the pass. Has strong hands and will pull the ball from the air winning out in battles."
Negatives: Shows minimal quickness and speed in his game. Average route runner. Lacks a quick release off the snap.
Analysis: "Matthews? stock is on the rise, and he?s someone who elevated his game as a senior. He's a possession receiver and can have a career at the next level as a fifth receiver if he continues to make progress."
