2023 NFL Draft: Matthew Bergeron, OL, Syracuse

Rating scale: 1 Poor 10 Elite  COD: Change of direction


Caballero loves that Matthew Bergeron has position flexibility at right or left tackle. “This young man should find a starting spot sooner than later,” said Caballero. Fits the mold of a traditional NFL OT that plays for many years. Select this man and do not worry about that spot for several years.”

Bergeron has a high football IQ to go along with his tremendous size. Matthew Bergeron’s play is enhanced by using the proper technique in most instances. Caballero said, “Matthew is disciplined but at the same time plays with a nasty streak by using his violent hands. He has elite contact balance.”

He might not be the strongest at times but his technique is so solid that he is good at both run blocking and pass protection. Bergeron will stick with a defender even if he loses the first contact step. Bergeron is not going to swing the gate open to allow a clear path to the QB. Caballero said, “Matthew has the dog in him. His opponents better be ready to do better each snap.”

Matthew is tall but at times his reach is average. He would be a great fit in a zone-blocking scheme.
