Falcons selected Texas A&M OT Jake Matthews with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
It's an obvious pick for a team that received embarrassing tackle play last season. We'd expect Matthews to immediately slide in at left tackle, shifting Sam Baker to the right side. Matthews (6-foot-5 1/2, 308) is the son of Hall-of-Fame guard Bruce, and a two-time first-team All-SEC pick. A four-year starter for the Aggies, Matthews played right tackle his first three seasons before replacing Luke Joeckel on Johnny Manziel's blindside in 2013. What Matthews lacks on Greg Robinson and Taylor Lewan in build and athleticism. He compensates for with pro-ready technique and superb hand use. He's a bit short armed (33 3/8"), but can play all five positions on the line, and projects as a plus rookie starter. May 8 - 8:51 PM
