We may have whiffed in the 1st round, but I think we hit a homer in the 2nd when we got him. Kid might set rookie team record, he is putting up some gawdy numbers for a rook.

He looks good.

Needed him to catch that one for a first down though.

Not saying he isn't making mistakes, but compare his stats with those WRs taken in the first and they stack up nicely. BTW, like Boykins, he is perfect for the slot, his lack of breakaway speed is overshadowed by the mismatch he creates when a LB or S try to cover him.

I had this discussion yesterday with a coworker. As Matthews continues to improve I think we could move him outside and put Riley Cooper in the Slot. Ideally, we would need to put someone who can stretch the field opposite him but I think he could do well anywhere he lines up.
