MOBILE, Alabama -- It's hard to imagine Oregon's Casey Matthews being overlooked in the world of football.
His father Clay and uncle Bruce combined to play almost 40 years in the NFL.
His brother, also named Clay, can be seen anchoring the Green Bay Packers' defense this weekend in the NFC championship game against Chicago.
His grandfather, Clay Sr., played four seasons with the San Francisco 49ers in the 1950s.
