Casey Matthews  

Height: 6-1   Weight: 242   Age: 29

Born: 1/16/1989 Northridge , CA

College: Oregon

Experience: Season









Draft 2011

Pick No.116

Selected By: Philadelphia Eagles

Round: 4

Pick (Overall): 19 (116)

Pick Analysis: Matthews is the latest in a family of guys who play the game the right way. While he lacks some size and speed, he is a smart, relentless, highly-productive player who will provide solid depth and special teams value while developing into a starter. Overcomes lacks of power by reading and reacting quicker than most linebackers. Does a great job of slipping blocks inside the box and is a sure tackler but does not have true sideline-to-sideline range and may struggle when caught in a phone booth. Better suited for zone coverage with his great awareness than man. Matthews could sneak into Day 2.
