Las Vegas Raiders NFL Draft Prospect: Matthew Butler, Tennessee Vols

Tennessee Vols Matthew Butler is a player who can boost the Las Vegas Raiders’ depth at the defensive position.

Butler is a seasoned defender who flashed the ability to be disruptive at the NFL level.

Quick off the snap, with room to improve on his hands, Butler plays well with good leverage on both the pass and the run.

“Defensive lineman who isn’t a pure one-gapper or two-gapper, but has enough play strength and athleticism to operate in either capacity. Butler plays more stoutly than his top-heavy frame might indicate. His blend of body control and grit allow him to reverse course against block sustain and get back into the play. He’s not overly explosive up the field but has enough edge rush and secondary effort to become a nuisance from time to time. Butler should step into a rotational role early in his career before competing for a spot as a starting three-technique for a 4-3 unit,” Lance Zierlein of the NFL Network said.
