Draft Result

Drafted in the 2011 Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 4th round with the #19 pick.
The Eagles needed help at the linebacker spot, and they're getting some with Matthews. The former Duck obviously has great bloodlines, but his high motor and playmaking ability will make him an instant favorite in the City of Brotherly Love.
