Oregon’s Matthews doesn’t wow, but it’s OK

Published on March 10, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Here’s the thing about Oregon LB Casey Matthews: He’s a guy who just works out OK.

So the fact that Matthews, brother to Packers OLB Clay Matthews, was just OK on Thursday at Oregon’s pro day really doesn’t say much about his stock.

He’s such a competitor, the game film really tells the story with him. Still, he took part of the Ducks’ pro day in front of representatives from 25 teams, this after he was unable to do any on-field drills at the NFL Scouting Combine because of a shoulder injury suffered during the bench press.

Matthews, who measured 6-foot-1 ½ and 232 pounds, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.79 and 4.80 seconds, a 4.13 short shuttle and 7.09 3-cone drills, and also had a 9-foot-5 broad jump and 32 ½-inch vertical.

I guess we’ll find out soon enough if he’s as good as his brother.

Other notable performers at the workout held indoors on FieldTurf:

DE Brandon Bair (6-6 ¼, 274) — He stood on his NFL Scouting Combine numbers and looked very good in his position workouts.

OLB Spencer Paysinger (6-2 ¾, 234) — He ran 4.76 and 4.74 in the 40, 4.33 in the short shuttle and 6.91 in the 3-cone drill. He had a 10-foot broad jump and a 31 ½-inch vertical. He also had himself a good workout.

WR Jeff Maehl (6-0 7/8, 189) — He ran 4.65 twice in the 40, 3.95 short shuttle, had 33 ½-inch vertical and a 10-1 broad jump. He fell down several times trying to do the 3-cone drill and didn’t get it done. He did eight bench-press repetitions at 225 pounds.

OLB Kenny Rowe (6-2 1/8) — He ran 4.86 twice in the 40, 4.43 short and 7.32 cone. He did a 32 ½-inch vertical and a 9-9 broad jump. He also had 20 bench-press reps.

Oregon coach Chip Kelly was pleased to see so many NFL folks present to see his program.

    I am going to be a senior in Highschool this year. I am 6'2 234. I run a 4.77 and I bench 385. I am pretty sure that I am bigger, stronger and faster than Casey Mathews and im still in highschool. I say the only reason he went to the NFL is because of his family history with the NFL.
    Sincerely, Blaine Pinkman
