2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TRAY MATTHEWS: Auburn, 6003 209 4.55. Three-year starter at Auburn after being dismissed from Georgia. From Newnan, GA. Deliberate in his pedal and reacts well from the deep safety spot. Quick to read and react to route combinations. Maintains a good cushion on routes in front of him and can close on the throw. Good downhill reactions from the deep safety spot. Tracks well moving forward and shows solid tackling skill. Bends and explodes into tackles and finishes. Physical taking on blocks with knee bend and separation. Ability to make plays in space. Plays well close to the box and normally fits up to the inside gaps and alley. Some wasted movement with false steps on initial read and can be a little late to the ball at times as a result. Opens his hips well to get over the top but false steps sometime cause a late reaction. Fits in the alley aren’t always the best as he will take a bad angle at times. Needs to improve his timing on getting to the catch point. Will get hung up occasionally in transition. May project as a sub-package linebacker and a backup to make a roster. Special teams’ skill will be important. 2017 stats: 59 T, 2 TFL, 1 sack, 2 PBU, 1 FR, 1 INT. Sixth/seventh round. (A-33 1/8, H-8 1/4, VJ-35.5, SS-4.41).
