- He possesses a solid athletic build to his frame….with room for growth
- He displayed above average vision…a highly effective jump step…allowing him to find daylight & consistently gains hidden yardage
- His running style reminds me of current NFL/RB “Jay Ajayi”…with similar size & skill sets
- Another elite attribute he brings to the table are his feet…which consistently keep defenders off balance…and once again allows him to gain the hidden yardage
- He is an effective runner in traffic…frequently making defenders miss in tight areas…displaying strong leg drive between the hashes when needed
- He displays SUCH acceleration before contact with defenders…making him difficult to bring down
- His balance…and low pad level allows him to frequently finish off runs leaning forward after last contact
- An area of his game that seems to go unnoticed is an excellent pair of hands out of the backfield…be nice to see this area of his game incorporated more in the team’s game plan
- Does he possess the breakaway speed?
MY VALUE BOARD
- Mattison is clearly one of the big “Breakout” performers for me coming into the CFB season…and the nation soon should be aware of!
