A lot will depend on him grasping the nuances of the pro game quickly and adapting his pure speed to the game's speed.
I still see defenses double-teaming AJ and leaving Mathis in 1-on-1, at least at first. If Mathis starts burning the 1-on-1 coverage, will defenses start doubling him and leave AJ 1-on-1? Either way, it would open up the field for the other WR's & TE's, and it would also open the running game.

Someone said earlier that Carr only gets 2.5 seconds to throw the ball and in that time Mathis would already be 20 yds down the field. What they didn't mention is that if Carr throws the ball 40 yds and it takes another 2.5 seconds for the ball to get there, Mathis would have to stop and wait for the ball considering that Mathis runs the 40 in the mid 4.2 second rang.

If you can't tell, I'm excited to see our Offense in action.

Mathis, lined up in a one-back set (3 WR's plus a TE), opens up the offense in so many ways. If he proves to be a serious deep threat, I could see the opposing team being forced into a nickle defense, with a 2 deep zone covering AJ and Mathis. This results in a favorable match-up for the 3rd receiver and the TE. And just as important, it opens huge holes for the running game.

I think Bradford could re-emerge as a viable threat. Can you imagine Mathis lined up wide on one side, Bradford wide on the other, with AJ in the slot?
