Ryan Mathews   #24 RB

Height: 6-0   Weight: 220   Age: 30

Born: 10/10/1987 Riverside , CA

College: Fresno State

Experience: 8th season

High School: West HS [Bakersfield, CA]









Draft 2010

Pick No.12

Selected By: San Diego Chargers

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 12 (12)

Pick Analysis: Mathews is a good sized running back that runs hard and shows a good burst through the hole. He is a one cut runner that does not waste a lot of time dancing around in the backfield. Once he gets past the first level he could use a bit more elusiveness in space as he has some straight line to him. He tends to run a bit erect but does show upper body strength to stiff arm his way out of a tackle as well as balance on contact to stay on his feet and fight for extra yards. He has struggled to stay healthy as he has missed time in each season at Fresno State.
