Ourlads' Profile:

2014 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about Jordan Matthews: Vanderbilt, 6031 212 4.46. Three-year starter. A slender angular possession pass catcher with long arms and strong hands to snatch a ball away from the defender. Uses his body well to screen off defender and catch the ball. A cousin of Jerry Rice. An impact player who has the strength to break tackles. A vertical route runner who can make overhead catches in stride. Has the speed to beat a corner deep, especially with his double moves. A long strider who picks up speed as he goes down the field. Struggles to separate in close quarters. Usually played with a big cushion. Catches the ball in his hands but will cradle catch as needed. Gets open by his route running prowess. Improved his overall route running in 2013. Good footwork and body balance. Good burst out of his cuts. Rarely any wasted motion. As polished and natural a receiver as there is in this draft. Faster than advertised, running a 4.46 at the Combine. Struggled early in the Senior Bowl week of practice, but competed hard and was back to his old pass catching self by week’s end. Good eye/hand coordination and body control. Can make the circus splash type catch. Wing span of 80 inches. All-time SEC career leader in receptions (364) and yards (4,950). The first SEC player with 90 receptions or more in back-to-back seasons and the first player in conference history to record 100 receptions in one season. 2013 stats: 112-1477, 13.2 ypr, 7 TD. OSR:13/46. Second/third round. (A-33 1/4, H-10 3/8, VJ-35.5, SS-4.18).
