Ourlads' Analysis:

2014 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about Jake Matthews: Texas A&M, 6054 308 5.05. Four-year starter who played right tackle in 2012. The second pick in the 2013 draft, Luke Joeckel, played on the left side. Moved to left tackle this past fall. Matthews is the middle son of Hall-of-Famer Bruce Matthews. A knee bender who plays with attitude and effort. Competed for an up-tempo offensive team. Good athletic ability and is consistently effective as a run blocker and pass protector. Has dominated pass rushers the past two years, including last year’s number six pick, Barkevious Mingo. Smooth lateral shuffle in pass protection. Plays square with his long torso and takes advantage of his long arms. Uses his quick hands efficiently in his punch, stab, placement, and extension. Good six inch pop. Can redirect and shift his weight quickly. Moves quickly off the ball as a zone blocker in the run game. Solid stance and foot quickness. Effective on combination and second level blocks. Stays balanced with good body control when blocking on the move. Plays with good leverage to anchor versus power. Fringe arm length for the left tackle position. Could use more strength to anchor a bull rush. OSR:4/40. Top 10 pick. (A-33 3/8, H-9 7/8, BP-24, 10-1.74).
