As I was watching film on Mathis two words came to mind, competitive and
physical. Mathis has what any defensive backs coach wants in a cornerback. He is
very physical when playing man to man and he brings the wood on his tackles.
When you play corner back you are out there on an island at times and your
competitive edge helps out more than a lot of people realize. He is only 5'9",
but his leaping ability, quickness, and flexible hips allow him to play bigger
than he really is.
Who He Reminds Me Of
New Orleans Saints Jabbari Greer.
Dior Mathis' ability to be physical on every play and his competitive edge will
allow him to see early playing time at Oregon. He could be a special teams star
as a freshman. His size will hinder him, but what hurts him the most is his
habit of jumping routes too early. If he can learn to time his breaks and play
more conservative at times, he could become a lock down corner at the collegiate
level and receive All-Pac 10 honors.
