If there's one player in the 2011 NFL Draft facing pressure, it's Oregon inside linebacker Casey Matthews.
He's watched his brother, Clay, go from being a late first-round pick to a superstar pass rusher for the Green Bay Packers.
There's ultimately going to be unfair comparisons. Casey Matthews said even some NFL teams were asking him about his more famous brother.
"No matter where I go, I’ll definitely be trying to prove a name for myself, and not be known as Clay — Clay’s son, or Clay’s younger brother. That’s definitely a compliment, though."
But the younger Matthews is working to make his own mark. He said his game is more instinctual.
Still, Matthews might have a hard time being a star like his brother. Instead, his career might be more similar to his father Clay, who played 19 solid seasons with the Browns and Falcons. Either way, there's pressure.
"I put a lot of pressure on myself seeing the success my dad had and my brother is having," Matthews said. "I put pressure on myself to get to their level. I don't feel I have to live up to the name, but it would be nice."
