"With Bruce having played all the positions and being selected to the Pro Bowl ... he was probably one of the more flexible offensive linemen to ever (play)," Fisher said, according to stltoday.com. "I think Jake's got some similar traits. We haven't seen Jake play center yet or guard. But athletically, he can do both I'm sure."
Fisher went on to draw more comparisons between father and son in the areas of competitiveness and durability. The elder Matthews made 297 career starts, including the postseason.
"It's not incorrect to assume that Jake's also going to be durable," said Fisher, who coached Matthews in the NFL after being his college teammate.
The Rams, with the draft's No. 2 overall pick and no need for either a quarterback or a defensive end like South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney, could opt for either Matthews or Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson to strengthen their offensive line. No matter what club picks Matthews, he'll be counted on first as an offensive tackle after playing both the left and right sides over his last two seasons at Texas A&M. But if he ever needed to move inside, he would have as good a bloodline as anyone to help him with the challenge.
