Ourlads' Profile:

2021 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about MATT BUSHMAN: BYU, 6042 239 4.75. Three-year starter, Tucson, AZ. Led the team in both catches and yards in all seasons in which he played. Missed last season with a torn Achilles. Has noticeably soft and easy hands capable of bringing the ball in from all angles. Has snappy reactions to the pass and will be a reliable traffic-threat. His tools will put a low ceiling on what his potential will be. He isn’t a burner and lacks pro-quickness. In addition, he is a mediocre blocker that doesn’t have the power or attitude to make any difference in that department. Can quickly swipe his hands late in any direction and come up with the ball. Shows the ability to make unorthodox catches where he needs to twist and turn to adjust to the pass. Has a wide catch radius that will make all the catches on the move. Good balance and precision with his footwork after the catch. Will pose a matchup problem for all second level defenders. Shows a lack of reaction-based twitch and athleticism. Has a limited set of tools. 2019 stats: 47-688, 14.6 ypr, 4 TD. Seventh round/PFA. (A-32 5/8, H-9 3/8, VJ-32.5, SS-4.53).
