Tyrann Mathieu aka The Honey Badger
 
I know the kid has issues but what round will he end up getting drafted? Could he be a steal for us like Houston was? Janoris Jenkins was a DB with off the field issues that St Louis picked up last year in the 2nd round as I recall. Could Mathieu be worth picking up in the 2nd this year?

Will he even be able to play at the NFL level ?


Haven't heard much about him with all the draft talk but we could always use another DB.

Too small

Not physical enough


Be a returner at the next level only.

Not before the sixth

I'd take him with a 7th round comp pick.

Janoris Jenkins is an NFL sized DB with legitimate speed and cover skills. Mathieu is a gadget player.

Justin Houston liked to smoke dope. That's it.

Tyrann Mathieu is a ****ing psycho who can't be trusted.

HUGE difference.

If we don't use one of our 7ths to trade up in later rounds, then you def take a shot at him.

If he doesn't work out....fine, it's only a 7th rd pick....plus he has much much more upside than Brown. If he can have a good mindset, then he should have something to prove to people.

Bell: Tyrann Mathieu suits up, says he's all business

Story Highlights

Ex-LSU cornerback is visiting 10 NFL teams in hopes of improving his draft stock
Mathieu is showing up to each meeting wearing a business suit and being honest about past troubles

So much about putting a value on Tyrann Mathieu's NFL draft stock involves getting a grip on his past. Two weeks before the NFL draft, the rehabbing former Louisiana State cornerback is in the midst of a 10-stop, cross-country tour with a few more face-to-face chances to sell the notion that he can be trusted after marijuana derailed his college career.

Six teams down, four to go. Mathieu will be in the desert Friday visiting the Arizona Cardinals. On Monday, he'll meet with the Cincinnati Bengals. Sit-downs with the Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks follow.

On each visit, Mathieu is wearing a suit and tie, hoping to send a not-so-subtle message that he's all business.

"This is his job interview," agent Patrick Lawlor told USA TODAY Sports. "It's just a matter of presenting himself as a professional."

And distancing himself from his turmoil. Mathieu, 20, once known for his nickname, Honey Badger, repeatedly has declared he's been clean since October, when he was arrested on possession of marijuana charges after being booted off the team.

During one visit, Mathieu was asked how many drug tests he failed before he was suspended in college.

According to an assistant coach for the team, Mathieu responded: "I quit counting at 10. I really don't know."

The coach, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to comment about the evaluation, doesn't dump all of the blame on Mathieu. He points a finger at LSU.

"If he flunked 10 tests before they suspended him, it shows that he got no kind of help," the coach said.

Mathieu (5-9, 186 pounds) isn't regarded as an elite athletic talent but is potentially a special prospect. As a sophomore, he was the first defensive player in 14 years to go to New York as a finalist for the Heisman Trophy. He has impressed NFL teams with his chalkboard knowledge during these weeks of close-contact scrutiny and has long wowed evaluators with his football instincts.

Do not want.

I think he can cover a slot receiver. He was a dominant player in the SEC. I think he will go in the 4th or 5th round. It is better to be a player than have great measurables. Ask Taylor mays.

ROFL.

Marquis Maze abused him out of the slot. He isn't good in coverage.

Players like this are why 7th round picks were invented. Failure has a low cost, and success has a proportionately high ceiling.
