Matt is an improved receiver, but I wouldn't count on seeing a lot of him
this fall. Late in games and such. He is greatly improved over last season
though. He's starting to get a lot of work in practices and has made some
good catches. He just isn't "Physical" enough to get off of hard checks at
the line, and has trouble fighting for passes against tight coverage. Sad
too, because with his height, if he was a little more aggressive he'd be
a hell of a weapon in the redzone for jump balls in the end zone, and
Hail Mary type plays. ........He's better, but still not there yet.
My surprise player this spring so far is Jacob August. Walk on TE. Dude
has got some hands, and can block very well. He's following the same
path that got Buster Anderson noticed a couple of years ago. He showed
ZERO fear on that skinny post route going up the middle and catching that
pass by Connor Mitch and between two DBs. I like watching that guy play !
