Draft Scout Matt Hazel News
09/06/15 - WR Matt Hazel, the 2014 sixth-round pick from Coastal Carolina, made the final 53-man roster with a strong performance in the preseason finale against Tampa Bay. Hazel was regarded as a longshot but he came on late in training camp to turn heads.
12/22/14 - WR Matt Hazel was signed by the Dolphins from their practice squad Saturday (Dec. 20). The 5-10, 210-pound Hazel was the Dolphins' sixth-round selection (190th overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft. Hazel has been a member of the Miami practice squad for the entire 2014 season after being released following training camp on August 30.
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Dolphins' picks: Round 6/190 - Matt Hazel, WR, 6-1, 198, Coastal Carolina...Hazel had 70 receptions for 990 yards and nine touchdowns last season. He'll seemingly have a hard time getting immediate playing time from scrimmage because this is one of the deepest areas of the team. - The Sports Xchange
01/18/14 - PROSPECTS WHO HELPED THEMSELVES AT THE SHRINE GAME: 6. WR Matt Hazel, Coastal Carolina (6-1, 196, 4.53, #84)...With Notre Dame's T.J. Jones pulling out of this week due to an injury, Hazel stepped up and separated himself as the top wide receiver in attendance. He displayed smooth routes, long strides and caught everything thrown his way throughout practice. Hazel, who also scored a touchdown in the game, was very productive throughout his college career and his skill-set translates well to the NFL level despite lacking elite size/speed for the position. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/13/14 - 2014 Shrine Game: Monday Practice Report...With Notre Dame's T.J. Jones out due to injury, the top receiver spot in this all-star game is up for grabs. And the two receivers who are the favorites in my eyes to separate themselves as the cream of the crop are San Jose State's Chandler Jones (West Team) and Coastal Carolina's Matt Hazel (East Team). Jones has explosive feet to run crisp routes and caught everything with his hands on Monday. Hazel showed tremendous adjustments to the ball and reeled in every ball thrown his way as well. Both are players to watch this week at the wide receiver position. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
