    it makes you wonder how much genetics play into it or if they just have access to superb coaching from a young age....

    Clay Matthews II (Cleveland) Clay Matthews III (Green Bay) were both first round picks (Clay Matthews I was a 25th round pick).

    Bruce Matthews (son of Clay I, brother to Clay II, and uncle to Clay III) was also a first rounder, and his son Jake would have been a first rounder tonight if he had come out along with his teammate Luke Joeckel (he'll be a first round pick next year).

    Casey Matthews (Clay II's son and Clay III's brother) was a 4th round pick and Kevin Matthews (Bruce's son and Jake's brother) made it to the league as an undrafted free agent.
