Editor’ note: Welcome to our 2012 Draft Prospect Profile series, written by Scott DelleFave. Scott is putting together quick, digestible summaries for highly publicized discussed prospects, prospects that interest him, and prospects that interest YOU.
If there’s someone out there who has piqued your interest and you want to know a little but more about him before April rolls around, get at Scott and request he put a profile together. You can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org with a request.
The series isn’t Bills-centric necessarily; however, when the occasion calls for it, Scott includes thoughts on how a player might impact the Bills were they to draft him. But overall the goal is to educate you on some of the names you’ll hear called in April.

Matt is a great athlete and has a massive frame with room to put on 25 pounds if desired. He has a pronounced mean streak in him, and can be a true road grader blocking lineman and is athletic enough to be a down the field type lineman as well. Finally, Matt has bloodline in the game from his father and brother both playing at the professional level.
His struggles are against defenders that excel with the rip move and ones with track star speed. He starts a little low and can stray out of his blocking lanes.
Matt is the best non-quarterback prospect in the 2012 Draft. He will make his fellow teammates at the next level from the offensive line to the quarterback and even the running back that much better.
