Ourlads' Analysis:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TYLER MATAKEVICH: Temple, 6000 238 4.78. Four-year productive starter from Stratford, CT. Temple’s all-time leading tackler with 493 stops. The first Temple defensive player to earn first-team All-America honors. He also won the Chuck Bednarik Award and Bronko Nagurski Trophy given to the nation’s most outstanding defensive player. Has a God-given natural ability to find the ball and make plays. Outstanding anticipation. Takes on blockers aggressively using his hands to create separation. With his good functional upper body strength he can take on and shed a downhill blocker. Calls the defenses and directs traffic to get his teammates in position. A violent hitter who is intense and competitive in his play. Sideline to sideline player who tackles well in space. A versatile linebacker who could play outside as well as inside. His production is off the charts and he is always squeezing the most out of his ability. 2015 stats: 138 T, 15 TFL, 4.5 sacks, 5 PBU, 1 QBH, 5 INT. Edge speed:left 2.14, right 2.45. OSR:17/19. Fourth/fifth round. (A-31 1/4, H-9 1/2, BP-22, SS-4.50).
