#4. Tyler Matakevich
Tyler Matakevich, the 2015 Chuck Bednarik award winner, could bring a huge addition to the Dom Capers’ defensive squad.
Clay Matthews has done a great job on the inside, but his ideal spot is to be on the outside wreaking havoc.
Matakevick is a tackling machine. He is the Temple Owls all-time leading tackler with 492 career tackles.
During his senior year Matakevick showed off his playmaking abilities. To go along with his 138 total tackles, he added 4.5 sacks and 5 interceptions.
During his four years as the ILB for Temple, Matakevick surpassed 100 total tackles each season – only the seventh player to accomplish such a feat.
To say he was the heart and soul of his defense may be offensive. He was so much more.
Matakevick has the type of aggression to excuse the occasional play where that could potentially be a problem.
He’s a sure tackler that it seems like this defense could have used for years.
Scouts have him a little undersized at 6-foot and 233 pounds. but he is a physical presence in a not so overwhelming package.
Matakevick is a great leader and has proved over his four years at Temple that he is a durable staple at the inside linebacker position.
It wouldn’t take long for him to become a fan favorite at Lambeau Field.
