Hell yes Baby. I knew Cass had it in him. We are back in this draft. Now we need to make a trade and grab Antaj Hawthorne or Chris Kemoeatu, or CJ Moseley. Man I am thrilled with this pick it is frickin great. JJ Moses, Bradford, Swinton they can all go find new jobs we just got a baller.

I love this pick. it is freaking awesome. I am totally thrilled that we got this kid and he will be a dynamo in the slot and special teams. I think we need to trade back into this round to get an Interior lineman or a DL.

I think we need interior O-Line help more than another receiver, but with that said, I really like Mathis' potential and I think with a little work, he can end up being a good receiver...Didn't he run a sub-4.3 40?

It does ease the pain a little, but we did lose Elton Brown who I thought we should have taken in the third.

I agree except Swinton. That kid can ball too. He's been doin work since he's been here. Mathis has been in the league for about 5 mins now.

D-Rek are we thinkin Chris K. or maybe CJ Moseley or Hawthorne for the D-Line. I am excited now. Swinton is little more than a journeyman that has done nothing. I think he will be good as a gunner on special teams but not a threat at the kick return spots. I wish he could switch and play corner though because his footwork and hips are nice.

He runs a 4.28 40. That's really all you need to know.

Excellent pick. Great kick returner and speed burner at 4.32 in the 40.

I don't think we would take Hawthorne, but I'd love to have Kemoeatu, Jason Brown, or Ben Wilkerson...I wouldn't be against using a 5th and maybe a 6th to get back into the fourth...

Jerome Mathis WR Hampton 5’11 181
By: Robert Davis
www.footballsfuture.com They Had Him High Second Round Pick to Titans!

One of the fastest risers of late, Jerome Mathis is a name everyone needs to know. There may not have been a better playmaker at wide receiver in college the past few seasons. As a sophomore in 2002, Mathis made a name for himself by catching 24 passes for 615 yards and 3 touchdowns. That's an average of over 25 yards per catch. He also ran the ball 20 times for 188 yards on the ground. In 2003, he caught 40 passes for 977 yards and 9 touchdowns. He save the best for last though, as this past season he upped his average per catch to over 29 yards a grab. He caught 29 passes for 864 yards and 9 touchdowns. The best numbers though, were his kick return numbers. He averaged 35.5 yards per kick return with an amazing 5 for touchdowns. His 6 career return touchdowns set a NCAA record. Mathis also doubled as a track star, as he was a two time NCAA East Regional 200m champ.

Mathis is the most exciting player in this draft. Give him the ball and watch him come up with something out of nothing. He averaged over 25 yards per catch during his career, over 9 yards per carry, and over 25 yards per kick return. He accelerates in and out of cuts very quickly, and gets to second gear immediately. He brings instant impact ability as a kick returner.


Playing for Hampton creates questions about the talent he faced in college. He did not face top corners on a consistent basis, so it’s going to be a switch when he gets to the NFL. He’s going to need some time to develop his skills and adjust to the big leap in talent. He may be a project at receiver, but should make an impact on special teams immediately.

Mathis first started making waves as a potential first rounder during the Gridiron Class in January. He had two receptions for 59 yards, two rushes for 49 yards, and added 35 yards on his lone kick return. He only solidified himself as a borderline first rounder after he turned in a blazing 40 time of 4.32 at the combine, which some say may have been the fastest in the combine’s history. Some teams are going to be scared off by his lack of polish as a receiver, but his playmaking ability is going to entice someone to call his name within the Top 50 of the draft in April.

From CBS Sportsline:

http://cbs.sportsline.com/nfl/players/draft/416101

ANALYSIS

Positives: Has a lean, tightly muscled frame with a thin waist (built for speed) … Shows good strength to release vs. press coverage, using his hands effectively, combined with sudden acceleration to avoid the jam … Does a good job of maintaining balance along the sidelines … Has the second gear needed to separate in the open … Will body catch, but does not drop many balls … Not the type who will shy away from contact, showing aggression, leaping ability and timing to combat for the ball in flight … Does a very good job of tracking the ball in over his shoulders and has the hip wiggle and shake to easily elude defenders after the catch … Shows the ability to come back quickly for the under-thrown pass and displays crisp stop-and-go action … Unlike most sprinters, he has more than only straight-line acceleration … He is active with his hands to maintain separation with the defender and is adept at executing double moves to elude … Very effective running deep routes, posts and verticals, as he has the pure speed to win any foot race … Gives good effort and stays to fight when asked to block at the line of scrimmage.

Negatives … Has made improvements in using his hands to assist in his release, but needs to run crisper routes, especially in the short area, where he rounds his cuts and looks sluggish coming out of his breaks … Must work on maintaining concentration on the ball, as he has dropped a few easy tosses because he looks to run before securing the ball … Double catches the ball quite a bit, letting it absorb into his body and needs to show better hand extension to catch away from the body's frame … Well-liked and a hard worker, but had two off-field incidents (assault), with one leading to a conviction.

INJURY REPORT
No injuries reported.

AGILITY
4.28 in the 40-yard dash … 2.51 20-yard dash … 1.53 10-yard dash … 35.5-inch vertical jump … 10'1" broad jump … 32 5/8-inch arm length … 9 3/8-inch hands … Right-handed … 19 Wonderlic score.
