WATCH: NFL Draft prospect Jake Matthews changes up his training
It appears that former Texas A&M tackle Jake Matthews has been training hard for his shot in the NFL. Here's some footage of the top-rated OT prospect in action.
Texas A&M OT Jake Matthews figures to go off the board early in this year's NFL Draft. Consistently ranked among the very top NFL prospects -- and currently in the No. 3 spot in our prospect rankings -- Matthews is considered one of the top two offensive tackles available, in a draft rich with teams looking for beefed-up protection.
With so much on the line, it's only natural that Matthews has enlisted in what appears to be a pretty rigorous pre-draft training regimen, as seen in the video above.
"He's progressed across the board and shown us some impressive numbers," Capretta said.
Interestingly, Matthews' training includes occasional sessions on the beach, which serve a function other than just a change of scenery and fresh air.
"Being explosive on an unstable surface will really help him transition onto the field," Capretta said.
