2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about ALEXANDER MATTISON: Boise State, 5105 221 4.69. Junior entry from San Bernardino, California. Two year starter who was honorable mention All-MWC in 2017 and first-team in 2018. An every down back who can help a team in several ways. Excels between the tackles and also carries standout blocking traits. His ability to naturally catch the ball and move north right away adds yet another dimension to his game that can keep him on the field at all times. The upside has a cap on it, but this kind of back is as safe a pick as a team can make especially in the late day two, early day three area. Comfortably packs functional weight and muscle onto compact frame. High stepper that can plant his foot hard and burst straight ahead with explosion and pop. Knows when to turn on the jets right away and when to approach the line with patience. Smart player and instinctive runner. A violent finisher that can get plenty of push at the line in short yardage. Plus hands and ball skills. Plucks the ball away from his body and always looks it in. Locks the ball in high and tight to his body. Superb blocker that combines pop, variance, and effort. Linear runner, lacks the wide base stemming from hip tightness. Won’t give you a lot as a lateral mover. Doesn’t always reach the outside. Misses the cutback lanes often. Top speed in the open field can be caught from behind, not a big play back. Can get too upright and take too many hits to the lower body. 2018 stats: 1415 yds, 4.7 ypc, 17 TD, 27 rec, 173 yds, 6.4 ypr, 0 TD. OSR:11/ 24. Fifth/sixth round. (A-31, H-9 1/8, BP-22, SS-4.33).
