Matthews began his 2013 season ranked as the top offensive tackle in the class and did not disappoint. Riley Reiff played well at left tackle this past season, but a move inside to guard might be where Reiff would do his best work. Meanwhile, Detroit could install their brand new elite left tackle in Matthews right next to him.
