Texas A&M: Jake Matthews selected by Atlanta Falcons with 6th overall pick

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

LT Jake Matthews is the first Aggie selected in the 2014 draft!

WHAT ATLANTA CAN EXPECT by Ranger222

If there is an NFL draft prospect this year that is an immediate starter, it is Jake Matthews. He is the ultimate "plug-and-play" guy for the Falcons. Give him the left or right tackle job, and just forget about him for the next 15 years or so. Your franchise will be set. He is a true cornerstone for an NFL offensive line.

The question for Jake is: how good can he be? I'm not sure he will be a Hall of Famer like his father. Few are. It's probably a bit premature to ask whether Jake is a once in a generation player. I do think he is a Pro Bowl-caliber player, and will be a tremendous addition to any NFL roster.
