Tyler Matakevich

School: Temple
Position: ILB
Positive: Four-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-America and all-Conference honors since his freshman season. Won the Chuck Bednarik Award and Bronco Nagurski Trophy as a senior after he led Temple with 138 tackles, 15 tackles for loss and also produced 4.5 sacks. Also intercepted 5 passes and broke up 5 more last season. Tough, hard-working linebacker with great instincts. Gives effort in every aspect of the game, sacrifices his body to make plays and sells out. Remains disciplined with assignments, plays within the system and has a sixth sense for knowing what's going to happen. Instinctive, breaks down well and forces ball carriers to reroute with his ability to get up the field and fill gaps. Displays a good change of direction, anticipates plays and very active. Gets depth on pass drops and consistently positions himself to make plays on the ball.
Negative: Average athlete, lacks a great burst and ineffective in downfield coverage. Lacks bulk, struggles getting off blocks or gets caught up in the trash.
Analysis: Matakevich is a tremendous football player and a linebacker with a great feel for the game. He lacks next level measurables but in many ways reminds me of former All-Pro linebacker Stephen Boyd.
