While I do agree it's a mistake not to leave this year, he is coming from a family of wealth. Different strokes for different folks... I couldn't do it.

You hand off a football to him, he would get killed, you put me on a mound I would embarrass the team. People are born different, even in the same family.

case in point Eli is no PM, and never will be.

Yeah, but Eli is Olivia's son, not Archie's.

i love this guy casey Matthews, he's fast strong and wild just like his brother and is relentless in is play,
Clay didnt go to late in the first round and look how good of a player he is now he should get defensive player of the year......casey should be just as good if not better i would pull the trigger if he is there at or pick

Wow ... you have one to give? lol..... seriously ... he'd be a perfect fit on our defense... any others that we actually have a realistic shot at getting?

Passing on Clay Matthews in the draft was a mistake IMO.
Casey is his brother's clone and I'd love to see him in B&G.

Perfect player to get pressure on Matt Ryan and Josh Freeman.

Casey runs a 4.85, and also plays MLB, and is only 6-2 235 lbs.

If this site is right (it hasn't been updated in over a month), I don't think he's what we're looking for, on paper that is..

That's actually a slower 40 time that I've read (4.78 to 4.68). Clay's time was 4.67 and Clay also came out at 240lbs.

I'm not saying he's a first rounder (or even second), but his combination of skills, intensity and work ethic are rare.

He's quick to the play and could be used in many of the same ways Clay is.

Now if we're talking OLB, Bruce Carter - UNC - would be a great pick!

From the info that's out there on him, he sounds exactly like JoLonn Dunbar did in college.
