Matthews is a versatile linebacker who can play all three LB positions. He has great size and quickness and can impact a game in many ways. He's an instinctive player who has great range and anticipation skills. He's disruptive off the edge and makes a lot of plays in the backfield. He's an outstanding blitzer and is aggressive at the point of attack. He's an opportunistic defender who's always around the ball.

|Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis||With the move to a 3-4 defensive scheme, the Packers were looking for depth and linebacker and Matthews could compete for playing time as a backup this season on the inside and outside.|
