Notes:
2010 First Team All-Pac 10 (coaches), co-recipient of the Skeie's Award as Oregon's most outstanding player...One of four finalists for the 2010 Lott IMPACT Trophy and one of 15 semifinalists for the Butkus Award...2009 Second Team All-Pac 10 selection...The Ducks' lone representative in 2010 Senior Bowl...Started 13 games during 2010 campaign, compiling team-high 79 stops and tied for the league lead with three fumble recoveries...Finished 2009 season as Oregon's second-leading tackler (81)...Became a fixture in the starting lineup during 2008 season...Strong football bloodlines (brother of Green Bay Packer Clay Matthews III and son of former NFL veteran Clay Matthews)...Turned in strong performance in BCS National Championship Game, helping to contain Auburn quarterback Cam Newton...Instinctive playmaker and animated leader...Possesses ability to penetrate opposing backfields...Sheds blocks frequently...Contains edge well and can shut off wide rush...Solid in coverage...High motor...Stats inflated by blitz-heavy system...Doesn't change direction incredibly well and may have trouble in man coverage at the next level...Solid overall athlete and playmaker, but does not excel in any one area.
