07:30 AM ET 09.17 | When you're talking about Texas A&M's talent on the offensive side of the ball, you're talking about more than Johnny Manziel. [Jake Matthews] is the son of NFL Hall of Fame offensive lineman Bruce Matthews and is one steady football player. He has a classic NFL tackle build at about 6'5" -- 310 with the frame to carry 320 if he desired. He is even cut with long arms. Playing in a fast paced spread offense he is in excellent condition. ... He has the lateral agility to stop wide speed and anchors as well as any tackle I have ever seen. Matthews is an excellent technician with very good hand use. He has a strong punch and excellent hand placement. Matthews is an excellent prospect. ... Both [Taylor Lewan] and Matthews are better prospects than Eric Fisher and Luke Joeckel last year and will be drafted very high.

IMO Evans will be a better pro than Matthews

JFF will be WTFJJ's next savior and savant pick to lead the Dallas Cowboys out of the NFL wilderness.

yep. only a fool (josh daniels you still drafting) would take JFF before the 3rd.

Tebow actually won a playoff game, still Tebow in the 1st was a huge stretch. IMO Ponder, Locker, Weeden, Gabbert have been bigger.

Chip Kelly new QB then...I think he could become a better pocket passer than Vick

Heard this from an aggie insider.

"Sumlin just wishes he could infuse Keenum's mind into JFF's body. Would never have to punt."

Evans damn near kilt me. Can't hardly stop the dude when Manzeel throws it in the right spot.

If Manzeel was 6 foot 1 like the internet claims, but isn't true, he'd be a 1st rounder. at 5 ' 11" and maybe 1/2, he'll drop to 3rd or 4th round. He's very talented though.

Staubach didn't just "have" a Code of Honor. He lived it.

For the right coach in the right system (Chip Kelly?) Manziel will be a major force. For the wrong system he will be an after-thought.
