Ithaca, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Cornell senior quarterback Jeff Mathews spent all four years suiting up for the Big Red, in doing so he broke nearly every school passing record.

The next goal is get drafted into the NFL.

He took his next step towards that by throwing at Cornell pro day on Thursday afternoon. Mathews took snaps in front of scouts from the Jaguars, Bills, Raiders and Colts.

His coach, and U-E grad, David Archer said whichever team gets him is going to be very lucky.

"I look at him as an unbelievable, kind of like a ball of clay for an NFL team that they can shape and mold," said Archer. "You know he has all the tools and his off-the-field toughness and leadership intangibles are off the charts. Somebody is going to get a heck of a player."

"I want to get out there and get an opportunity and work my tail off and see where I end up in the whole thing," said Mathews on Thursday. "You know, I believe in my abilities and what I can do and I'm excited with what I'm going to bring to a team."

Last month Mathews took part in the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, IN. The NFL Draft begins on Thursday, May 8th and runs through Saturday, May 10th.
