Mathis has one thing going for him.. playing against Drob and Buchanon..

Can you imagine the practices?
Buchanon ran a 4.31 forty before his draft...
Mathis runs a 4.2ish...forty before his draft ...

Was the goal line one where they went about 95+ yards?

The returns were primarily up the right side after it was sealed off. The team he played for did an excellent job of setting up the return. We don't do that. He received the ball in stride on most occasions, but he did come back and wait on one. His speed is desepitve as he has that easy stride. Reminds me of the great Tommie Smith of Lemore in our area. Watched him run when he was at San Jose State. The guy was unbelievable and he had that stride that looked like he was just moving along and then you realized he was just flat out blazing fast but he looked just like he was loping along. Watched Smith take a hand off in the 440 relay 10 yards behind the other guy and won going away by 10 or 20 yards. Again the easy stride is deseptive. It fools the defense. Looks like the guy has excellent hands. Its obvious he's a football player unlike Bob Hayes. The young man has excellent potential, but it's hard to judge because the level of competion was not the greatest.

WRONG WRONG WRONG, one of the biggest knocks on the kid is he drops balls, i think he will be a very productive WR, but it is a habit he will need to "drop" so to speak. AJ had the same knock, that he dropped some passes, and AJ has worked on that every year that he has been here, if Mathis puts in that kind of work, then he will be very good

This guy was a verry good pick, simply just because he's a 4'th round pick that will definatly return kicks if nothing else. The main thing about kickoff or punt returns is speed and recognising when to change direction. It's the one area af the game that their is verry little change in speed from NCAA division 2, 1-AA, or 1-A, or the NFL, although it may seem like their would be a big change, most football players on special teams run anywear from a 4.5 to 4.7 40, and those kinds of guys are a dime a dozen. One coach who loves to recruit returners from small schools would be Bill Parcells, one example of that would be Eric Metcalf.

I just hope that Palmer let's Mathis run down the field and doesn't just throw him wr screens and lets him run a reverse.

Wasn't Eric from UT or am I thinking of someone else?

Sorry, Metcalf did go to Texas, but I believe he was drafted by the Browns. The Player I was thinking about was Dave Megget, who played for Townson State.

I will disagree with this statement. An in depth scouting report does says he will occassionally drop a ball when he loses concentration and tries to run before securing the ball. But this same scouting report also says he does not drop many balls, despite a tendency to body catch.

So far in mini-camp, he has impressed with his hands - "I like the way his hands have looked to this point in time"...Capers. Of course the balls have not been the bullits thrown by Carr.

The Chronicle reported that Mathis did not have a position coach for the past two seasons. He obviously has some bad habits, but IMO the book is still out on him just as to how good a player he can develope into with professional coaching.

Dunno, Coles can hold onto the football. I haven't seen this guy play at all, but with his speed he will open up the middle of the feild some for AJ. The knock on him right now is that he drops too many balls. Maybe if he doesn't pan out we could trade him to Seattle (They seem to love Wide outs that drop the pigskin).
