The Dolphins traded down 16 selections. I am shaking my head at that decision.
As for Matthews, NFL.com writes- Mathews is a good sized running back that runs hard and shows a good burst through the hole. He is a one cut runner that does not waste a lot of time dancing around in the backfield. Once he gets past the first level he could use a bit more elusiveness in space as he has some straight line to him. He tends to run a bit erect but does show upper body strength to stiff arm his way out of a tackle as well as balance on contact to stay on his feet and fight for extra yards. He has struggled to stay healthy as he has missed time in each season at Fresno State.
San Diego needed a replacement for LaDainian Tomlinson. Matthews has big shoes to fill.
