Their teams were both new to the SEC, but Texas A&M OT Jake Matthews, who is widely forecast to be a top 10 pick in the draft this spring knows the best pass rusher he faced in college wasn’t from one of the traditional power schools in the SEC.
Matthews, who had a pre-draft visit with the Bills Wednesday, was asked who the most challenging pass rusher was for him in his college career and he cited Missouri DE Kony Ealy.
“I thought Kony Ealy was really good at Missouri,” said Matthews. “Real aggressive, big and strong. Mixed up his pass rush moves real well.”
Ealy, who is profiled in our Countdown to Draft Day presented by Time Warner Cable today, had four tackles, including one for loss and a quarterback hurry in the game. Missouri won the contest 28-21 in Columbia.
