    Out of Cornell. Anyone know anything at all about him? I know nothing, but ran across this scouting report.

    Looks like he likely won't get drafted. Maybe BO'B's next Brady project?

    I watched one game this year, he was pitiful. I also followed him from season start and has dropped like a rock.

    He may go in the 7th but I don't think he has a NFL future.

    His potential (not very high) vs. the time it would take to get him there (a long time) is not going to be worth it.

    Brady was never BO'B's "project." Dude was only with the Patriots from 2007-2011, by which time Brady had already won 3 SBs.

    Cassel would be a better comparison.

    Have read a few scouting reports and they all seem to say similar things - basically, he has the physical tools, which you can't teach. But like I said, never seen the guy play and know nothing about him, so I just figured some of y'all might have watched him a little. Thanks for the responses. :)

    I've only seen him once, but like Texian, I didn't see a NFL player.

    Nice format and presentation! You might want to add some basic numbers (on screen) like weight, height and 40 times for a hang your hat type of thing.

    Here's an analysis by National Football Post of Mathews based on 2012 tape. How would you compare his "maturation" points through the 2013 season?

    Thanks Cloak! I watched him live 2 times this year (Yale & Penn) and the team around him wasn't as good…but what was evident this season was his ability to extend the play more (which explains the amount of sacks) and also showing some mobility (by necessity)

    Being at the games, I kept close eye on him drive after drive..was always upbeat & encouraging despite having minimal offensive success that day (Yale). At the Penn game, his last one, played the loosest I've seen him play which was a good thing.

    And he was the better out of the 3 QBs at the E/W Shrine Game this year throughout the week of practices. I want to say he had about 5 or 6 'WOW' throws from the scouts/bloggers/analysts

    Penn, Yale, Harvard & Princeton wereÂ…they were some of the tougher defenses in the FCS

    Love your work as always Em keep pumping these suckers out!

    Mathews looks like a very worthwhile project, has some of Brady's mannerisms but never seems to throw the deep ball.

    Thanks BL! Last season he threw the deep ball a lot more b/c of the talent at WR..he had Luke Tasker (Steve Tasker's son) who now plays for the Hamilton Tiger Cats. This season, it was pitiful how the receivers couldn't get separation
