The worst-kept secret of good edge prospects played for the Huskies.
I’ll often watch one player only to have another perform so well that he hijacks my motivation to watch the original assignment. It happened a few years ago when Ryan Riddle and I were watching Denzel Perryman and Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah ran away with our attention.
The same thing happened Friday night when I was studying Stanford RB Christian McCaffery—one of the better prospects at his position—and Washington edge man Joe (Jojo) Mathis popped off the screen with his performance.
Because he played at Washington and missed much of the season with a foot injury, the mainstream media isn’t talking about him in a way that matches his ability. That will change as the NFL Combine and Pro Days get rolling.
I have a half-hour’s worth of analysis on Mathis ready to go, but here’s a taste of what you’ll see and what initially caught my eye.
