Player Analysis: Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt

**Due to time constraints I will merely be reprinting my work from the CHTV Draft Guide for WRs and QBs. I wish I had more time to write up all my notes but such is the life of a part time freelancer. Thanks for your understanding.**

Name: Jordan Matthews

School: Vanderbilt

Height: 6’3”

Weight: 212

40-Yard Dash: 4.46

In a nutshell: Matthews has the ability to make some very tough catches both in traffic and one-on-one with a defensive back in his face. With his height and length he can out-jump a defensive back making him a fantastic red zone target. Lacks explosion and will get jammed if he doesn’t have space to accelerate from the line.

Senior Bowl: Matthews played very physical immediately off the line, and showed an ability to knock a defender off balance with his initial contact. However, when he was going deep, he struggled to do the same and often had to try and force contact again later on in the route. That will be an issue in the NFL.
