I put a NT ahead of the CB, because of the trickle-down effect (as you already know): the NT takes in double teams, freeing the DEs to open gaps/occupy O-linemen, which in turn, helps free up the OLBs... which helps the pass-rush. And, IMO, the pass-rush (or lack thereof) is one of the biggest problems with this team.
I've got to evaluate Matthews more on film before I buy in. He is a senior, son of former NFL legend, but this is the first year he has played LT in the SEC. That kind of lack of film at LT scares me a bit in the Robert Gallery, Jason Smith kind of way.
