Tennessee will receive the Nos. 54 and 122 overall picks from Philadelphia in return.
Incredibly productive for the Commodores, Matthews established a new SEC record for receptions (262) and receiving yards (3,759) while generating 24 touchdowns in four seasons. He was the lone senior ranked among the top dozen wide receiver prospects in the draft.
He joins Earl Bennett as the only Vanderbilt wide receivers drafted since 1992.
Matthews is a polished and savvy prospect with ideal size and good enough speed. If there's a knock against him, it's that he's not a dynamic playmaker and projects as a high-end No. 2 receiver.
His bloodlines check out, though. Matthews is a cousin of Hall of Famer Jerry Rice.
