Matthews possesses very impressive instincts. Diagnoses and finds the football quickly. Not fooled by misdirection or play fakes. Works tirelessly to shed blockers and isn't afraid of contact. Excels at shifting through the trash in the box and has good range. Sound tackler. Displays good awareness in coverage. Intelligent blitzer. Outstanding work ethic.
Lacks size and strength for the NFL. May have a more difficult time taking on bigger blockers at the next level. Has good range but not a true sideline-to-sideline guy. Not a good matchup against speedy running backs and tight ends in man coverage. Doesn't bring top explosiveness or power as a pass rusher.5.66
