Jordan Matthews - Wide Receiver, Vanderbilt, 6-3, 206 (4.55)

Matthews isn’t the most explosive receiver in this draft class, but he may be the most reliable. The senior out of Vanderbilt may lack the top-end speed of receivers like Sammy Watkins, but Matthews catches anything thrown his way.

He’ll be coming off two monster seasons. In 2012, he recorded 94 receptions for 1,323 yards and eight touchdowns, and this season, he recorded 107 receptions for 1,334 yards and five touchdowns.

The Packers could lose James Jones to free agency and could use another viable receiver with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb going into the final year of their contracts in 2014. Matthews would be a great fit in the Packers’ West Coast offense.

    Let’s go for HaSean Clinton- Smith. Safety is such a requirement to improve the defense. What kind of a name is Ha Ha, anyway? It’s too bad we can’t reap all this young talent. Tuitt is a monster much needed to be an impact player. These are my first two choices.

    • Dan

      Yeah, I’m with you, Peter. I think both Clinton-Dix and Tuitt would be great fits in the Packers defense. I like the TEs in this draft, but I don’t think Green Bay needs to spend a first round pick on one. I’d like them to go defense in the first round, but that’ll be three years in a row going defense in round one.

      • Peter Maiz

        Well 3 years in a row and another year without a good defense. I wonder.
