Panned for his NFL Combine metrics, Mattison is listed as the backup behind Dalvin Cook--ironically, another back panned for his combine metrics but had top-12 production down the stretch of 2018. Mattison is a fluid, strong runner with the quickness and vision of a future starter. He can also catch. If he earns the No.2 role, he will be in a position to become a productive starter if Cook gets hurt again.

Summary

With the departure of Latavius Murray and the injury history of Dalvin Cook the Vikings running back depth chart looked rather thin before they drafted Mattison in the third round. Mattison averaged 4.7 yards per carry during his junior season at Boise State and carried the ball 30 times during his final five games in 2018. (May 24)
