    Mattison

    Anybody have any updates on Floyd? I just remember his recruitment and was excited to see him make it on campus. Just wondering how he is progressing.

    Re: Mattison

    Haven't heard anything, but if I recall, he was an athletic freak who might not have been a great football player yet. If true, it might take him a while to "get it". But when he does, I could see him being a nice player for us.

    Re: Mattison

    He's #19 on the practice videos over on cyclones.com. He's working with the LB's, but at 6'0" and just under 200 lbs... he has some growing to do.

    I thought he might be more of a hybrid type nickel back? He really needs to put on 20 lbs or more to play LB IMO.

    Re: Mattison

    i thought safety, but that's completely based on what that max emfinger guy said, and no basis of my own.

    Re: Mattison

    Honestly, he is the one guy who I just don't get. I don't get why he's a LBer unless his atheleticism was slightly exaggerated and perhaps he doesn't have the speed we thought. I guess I would have just thought with the questions at Safety and his reported athleticism, he was cut out to be a safety. I'm not arguing with the coaches but I would like to hear the reasoning here.

    he's in the funnel drill video posted today and he gets dwarfed by the opposing TE's. Doesn't look like he has the powerful base yet to shed blockers.

    In one of the shots of him, he ran his guy back into the endzone. Now, that's not effective because he didn't make a play that mattered but for only being 200 lbs that's at least a little bit positive. He's just a RS freshman at arguably our best position group in terms of the starters and is second on the depth chart. I think he'll be fine but it may take time. Could be a really good special teams player this year.

    Looks like the linebacks and Dbacks didn't stand a chance. Looked like they were getting held or whatever it took to keep them away from the backs.

    Yeah, and the Dlinemen should have had a chance either with no handoff and the RBs taking right off. A couple nice plays in there by the Dline. I really like the quickness of all our backs. Woody even made a couple nice little hop steps.

    Re: Mattison

    The funnel drill is a good one. Shontrell obviously looked quick but (#8's) white's feet were looking good too.
    Mattison-
    With his skill set (from recruiting word) he will be an excellent addition to special teams during his RSFr year, then hopefully he grows a little without losing the quicks.
