Jake Matthews: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

The Falcons selected Matthews in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, sixth overall.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

There were rumors that the Falcons might be looking to take Michigan's Taylor Lewan to fill a need at tackle, but Matthews is the superior prospect and the more reasonable pick for Atlanta. Matthews' technique and reliability are of an extremely high grade, and it's possible that he'll be a better Day 1 blocker than Greg Robinson, who went to St. Louis four picks ahead of Matthews. Matthews might immediately displace Sam Baker as Atlanta's starting left tackle, but he'll start on the right side, if not. This pick is quite reassuring for Matt Ryan.
Matthews ran the 40 yard dash in 5.07 seconds and did 24 bench press reps at the NFL Combine.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Matthews is considered by many to be the top tackle in the draft, but we think Auburn's Greg Robinson owns that title. Matthews measured in at 6-foot-5, 308 pounds with a slightly disappointing arm measurement of 33 and 3/8 inches, while the younger Robinson killed the Combine with a 4.92-second 40 yard dash and 32 bench reps with 35-inch arms. Robinson consistently showed better strength, explosiveness and run blocking on tape, moreover. Matthews is a strong technician who moves very well for a tackle, though, and he presents clear starting potential at left tackle. We think Robinson is likely locked into the first five picks, whereas Matthews is more likely to go between six and 11.
