RB Alexander Mattison NFL Draft Profile – Boise State

Alexander Mattison
RB
Boise State
Class Year: Junior
Height – 5’11” Weight – 214 lbs
Twitter: @AlexMattison22
Combine Results:
40 Yard Dash – 4.67 seconds
Bench Press – 22 Reps (225 lbs)
Vertical Jump – 35.0 Inches
Broad Jump – 127.0 Inches
3 Cone Drill – 7.13 Seconds

Strengths:

During his junior season with Boise State, he ran 302 times for 1415 yards and 17 touchdowns. Sure, the opposition isn’t the best in that division, but this kid can play football. He can also run good routes and catch with solid hands.

Some of the cutbacks and change of direction you see on tape are incredible and prove he is NFL ready. He is used to a heavy workload, has functional speed and a great turn of pace.

Weaknesses:

Mattison suffered a leg injury last season and carried that into the combined. He seems to have lost a stride in speed and a 4.67 – 40-yard dash proved that. He generally has poor straight-line speed but makes up for it with great maneuverability.

Giphy:

Mattison uses his strength and size to deny the defender a chance at a tackle.

Pro Comparison:

Kareem Hunt

Overall Review:

He was a workhorse at Boise State and would fill a gap in the NFL as a solid back up. Look for him to go as early as late third round to late fifth round. If he can re-find the speed that put him into this class, he will go a long way to be a starter for a struggling franchise.
