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.
