Green Bay will be kicking the tires on BYU's leading wide receiver.

Outside of Bronson Kaufusi, there hasn't been much fanfare around BYU's class of players that will be entering this year's draft but it looks as if there are some suitors for wide receiver Mitch Matthews.

According to Brett Tessler, Mathew's agent, the Green Bay Packers are scheduled to bring Mitch in for a pre-draft workout. He also mentioned that there are multiple teams that are showing interest in the 6-6 receiver from Beaverton, Oregon.

Mathews had a solid pro day, checking in with a 4.44 in the 40 along with a 38" vertical jump and a 10'9" broad jump. In his final year with the Cougars, Mitch hauled in 54 catches for 737 yards and 11 touchdowns.

It's unclear whether the Packers are looking at Mathews as a late round prospect or as a potential undrafted free agent signing. Whether Mathews ends up getting drafted somewhere in 6th or 7th rounds or signs an UDFA deal will likely depend on the level of interest Mathews production and pro day performance has generated with other NFL teams.
