Prospect Summary

Matthew Bergeron NFL Draft Scouting Report

OT, Syracuse Orange

A native of Montreal, Matthew Bergeron became a starter for Syracuse as a freshman and has been entrenched in the lineup since. He began his career at right tackle before moving to the left side in 2020 and has extensive experience at both spots. Bergeron is a smooth operator with excellent body control and good mobility. He easily redirects, pivots, and is effective working laterally. Bergeron is a smart player that executes with good timing in the run game and excellent awareness in pass protection. 

Overall, his range is excellent and he can be trusted on longer pulls and hitting backside cut-off blocks. He should be an attractive option for zone-rushing offenses. He keeps his feet engaged and operates from a consistent base.

It appears that Bergeron has sufficient length but his inconsistency with hand placement and timing creates challenges for him protecting his edges and keeping opponents away from his frame. While he’s mostly an effective run blocker, his functional strength appears only to be average and he’s more reliant on technique, angles, and body positioning to create movement in the run game. Hey may only be a fit for zone rushing offense and I wouldn’t rule out a transition to guard for Bergeron at the next level.
