  • Casey Matthews Scouting Report
    By Greg Cox

    Strengths:
  • High football IQ
  • Active with great instincts
  • Hard worker
  • Elite NFL bloodlines
  • Will contribute on special teams



    Weaknesses:
  • Lacks speed
  • Trouble shedding blocks
  • Not a pass rusher like brother Clay
  • Size and strength not ideal

    Summary: Casey Matthews has long hair and plays linebacker. Other than that he does not compare favorably to his older brother Clay, which is unfortunate for him when it comes to getting selected early in the 2011 NFL Draft. He is a high-effort player though and can stick around by contributing on special teams if nothing else.

    Player Comparison: Zach Thomas. Like Thomas, Matthews was not blessed with overwhelming athletic ability or size. They both compensate by studying the game and getting into position to make plays rather than using elite speed to make up for being in the wrong position.
