Overview:

Matakevich has good size, is a solid pass rusher, and a tackling machine. He is also very experienced. He also is versatile, as he can play outside linebacker, and inside linebacker. On the other side he does get stuffed by bigger offensive lineman, he does not have the best speed, and he is not known as being as sack specialist. With that said, I expect Matakevich to be picked on day 3.
