(AP) — Texas A&M offensive tackle Jake Matthews will be the seventh member of his family to play in the NFL if he is drafted as expected in May.

He knows his football lineage doesn't hurt him, but hopes that his work as a four-year starter for the Aggies is what really wows teams looking to pick him.

Matthews, the son of Hall of Famer Bruce Matthews, did position drills at A&M's pro day on Wednesday. Afterward, he met with officials from the St. Louis Rams, who have the second overall pick in the draft.

Johnny Manziel attended the event, but did not work out. The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner is scheduled to throw for scouts on March 27.
