    WR Rishard Matthews, Nevada

    I think we could use a guy like this. I have watched him come up through Bakersfield Junior College and U of Nevada (tearing my Bulldogs a new one), and he has beasted at both levels. Very good routes, hands, body control, ball skills, and hard to tackle. Then I was surprised at his 40 times (4.47 at combine, 4.44 at pro day) because he never struck me as a speed guy or deep threat, just your classic X receiver. He plays like a pro. I think he could replace Marlon Moore immediately because he has almost the same speed as Moore, but is more physical and much more skilled. I think in a few years, he will be a Greg Jennings type of guy. I could really see Philbin going for a guy like this. He would be a good value in the 2nd round, and a steal in the 3rd IMO.


    If all you're goin' on is my confession, forget it. I'm simply not credible. -Dale Gribble

    I made this post before I realized how ridiculously deep the draft was at WR, but my sentiments are the same

    Good call. He is going to be a very very interesting player in camp.
    My personal Draft:

    1st Round: C. J Mosley(ILB)

    2nd Round: Joel Bitonio(T)

    3rd Round: C. J. Fiedorowicz(TE)

    4th Round: Dakota Dozier (T/G)

    5th Round: Daniel McCullers(DT)

    6th Round: Marqueston Huff(S/CB)

    7th Round: Jay Prosch(FB)

    Cunningham and Matthews look like prototypical Green Bay receivers. I like this.

    Matthews ran an official 4.62 at the combine...much faster at his pro day. Philbin compared this kid to James Jones from the Packers.

    You've probably already heard this but Matthews tore his MCL in the final game of the regular season then re-aggravated it during his training for the Combine. His agent advised him against running, but he did it anyway, and ran a slow time. I investigated a little bit the surface he ran on at his pro day to make sure it wasn't a track surface and it appeared to be regular stadium field surface. The reason I do that is because Greg Childs ran an "official" 4.55 at the Combine then busted out a 4.39 or 4.40 at his pro day, yet when I saw pictures of his 40 yard dash I noticed he ran it on a track surface.

    I like the Cunningham pick better.
    Matthews doesn't seem to have much quickness from what I have read about him. He will have a hard time separating.
    I doubt he will make the final cut.

    Interesting to see who makes the cut at receiver.
