I think there were better options, but Matthews is a good player. He doesn't play as fast as his time, but he will catch a lot of balls in that offense. Trading up with other receivers on the board is a bit of a mystery.

god no....avant was a stop drop and roll guy.....matthews can move and will have some yac...he just isnt going to stretch the field

totally different body type but as far as his overall game it isnt going to be drastically different from mack...with the exception of going up and getting a ball because of height and long arms....he gonna be a productive guy but not scare anyone

as long as he doesn't have the giroux/avant falling on the ground skills anything can happen.

Overall I like the pick

Watched as much Matthews and Huff video as I could this morning while I was taking a dump. Matthews is bulkier than I thought. He plays like a big wr. He catches the ball really well in coverage and knows how to use his size. He doesn't get great separation. He's fast in open space but he runs slow routes.

Huff might work well because Chip knows his to use him. He is pretty average overall. Reminds me more of a RB than a wr. His mom tried to bash his head in with a 2x4...so there's that too

In the history of the SEC there's Jordan Matthews and then every other player ever in terms of productivity.  And he did it without an excellent quarterback throwing to him. 

I'll say it again... LOVE.  THIS.  PICK.

We should just ignore what he did on the field for four years and focus on how he performed in a cone drill in Indianapolis.  Got it.

you arent looking at what he did on the field you are looking at his stats

should we ignore them totally....probably not....but college stats are incredibly skewed when it comes to transitioning to the nfl

production in the nfl draft means more as you move along in rounds....the earlier you draft the more things like talent size and measurables matter

I understand it's not an exact science and previous performance in college isn't the sole predictor of future performance.  If it were then Brandon Graham would be celebrating his fourth straight Pro Bowl appearance and Jerome McDougle would be being prepped for his induction into the Eagles Ring of Honor. 

The guys they've taken fit Chip's model for players and judging from the players they've gotten in the last two drafts I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt here.  I'm still salty about the first pick because I believe they could have gotten better value by going up a bit, but all we can do is * hope * they got it right.  Sooner or later they're bound to hit the jackpot on some of these clowns they're picking, right?
