Some find Matthews game "flawed" and not so great. when you go into the NFL, you aren't a superstar, you're a rookie, a man that has to prove himself on the roster. For instance, Steve Smith. Some called his receiving game a joke, he was too small. However, he had different plans. He worked, he put in extra hours, he studied film alone. And he is now the best Panther to ever touch the Grid iron. Well Jordan Matthews is getting a headstart.
Jordan Matthews was in the Senior bowl, we all know. Little did others know that Matthews was waking up at 5 o clock A.m to study film. It doesn't stop there. He also woke up OTHER teammates that he didn't even go to school with. HE pushed people he didn't know. What does that tell you he'll do in a new locker room?
Leaders are hard to come by in this league. i think Matthews would make a fine Smitty Replacement, and he would take Smitty's leader role. I do beleive however though, that Matthews Ceiling is a good #1. IF we draft matthews in the first, we will need to find another receiver some other time.
Jordan Matthews Potential Ceiling: Good #1. Amazing #2. NFL Comparison: Michael Crabtree.
Please note that Matthews IS NOT a top 25 pick. He is a 26-50 pick. WE WILL NOT LAND HIM IN THE 2ND.
