In the 2014 NFL Draft, the Atlanta Falcons selected Matthews with the sixth overall choice. Since USC’s Tyron Smith and Matt Kalil in 2011 and 2012, respectively, Texas A&M became the first school with consecutive top-10 selected offensive linemen.

Matthews sustained a high ankle sprain in his first NFL game, a victory over the Saints. Despite the injury, Matthews started every game in his first campaign but one.

When compared to 2014, where Matthews’ blocking allowed 51 quarterback pressures, only 38 were allowed in 2015.

Matthews was ranked third on Pro Football Focus’ list of the year’s most improved players during that campaign. Matthews and the Falcons agreed to a three-year, $52.5 million agreement on March 14, 2022.
