Yetur Gross-Matos, Penn State, Junior, 6’5, 264lbs, Edge
Fueled by tragedies he experienced in his life to get to this point. Yetur Gross-Matos is way more than a story he’s the real deal. Gross-Matos oozes potential that in a pass heavy league, teams will be looking for their pass rusher of the future.
Career Stats 93 tackles, 43.5 tackles, 16 sacks
First Team All-Big Ten (2018)
First Team All-Big Ten (2019)
Matos is a levered football player who knows how to utilize that strength. For a player of his Gross-Matos knows how to use his body and keep his pad-level down. Has one of the best motors in the draft and committed to the pursuit of football. Excellent ability to tackle and uses length to make tackles outside of his frame. Impressive/uncanny ability to flatten, bend and win around offensive tackles.
Areas to Improve:
Still a very raw prospect and needs to polish up his pass rush counters. On film there are times where you can tell he’s thinking too much and will misdiagnose a play. His ability to process information will gradually get better with coaching and repetition.
