Mathews taking Draft process one event at a time

Typically when you think of Ivy League alumni you think of doctors, lawyers, and stockbrokers.  Not very high on the list is NFL Player.  Only about a dozen or so Ivy League grads have been taken in the NFL Draft over the last ten years, including three last year.  This year, Cornell quarterback Jeff Mathews is looking to add his name to that list.  After being invited to the NFL Combine, Mathews held a Pro Day at Cornell to have at least one more opportunity to throw at Schoellkopf Field "when it kind of mattered."

Mathews says he doesn't pay much attention to the talk surrounding his draft projection, but takes the whole process one event at a time - advice he received from former Big Red teammate J.C. Tretter who was taken in the 4th round of last year's draft by the Packers.

Fox 40 will have more coverage of Mathews' road to the NFL as Draft Day draws closer.
