    Draft stuff...Tyrann Mathieu



    This knucklehead just cost himself millions of dollars because he can't stop smoking weed.

    It's a shame too...I LOVE him as a football player. Undersized, but has those elite ball skills and instincts. I would have loved for the Ravens to have taken a shot at him, but obviously, he's approaching Burfict levels of unreliability.

    I think as a safety, he has those Ed Reed/Troy Polamalu ability.

    If we're talking safeties, I really like Eric Reid. But I really don't see the Ravens taking anything other than a tackle in the first round in next years draft. The 2013 draft is deep with OT talent, and the position is probably going to be the biggest need for us. I also really like Manti Teo, but I can't see him making it out of the top ten, he is that damn good, and hopefully the Ravens wont be picking there.

    Oh, I wasn't suggesting that we take Mathieu in the first or any other safety.

    I agree...if a quality tackle is there for us in the first, that has to be the pick.

    I feel the same about Mathieu, would have loved to see him in a Ravens uniform. I still would love for the Ravens to grab him if he can put down the weed. Hope he doesn't turn into another Ricky Williams. Maybe LSU letting him go was a wake-up call for him?

    Great talent and he completely fucked himself. He had the potential to be a top 10 pick just like Eric Berry. He's that good. Now he'll have to hope some team takes a chance on him in round 2 like Janoris Jenkins. Moron!

    Nastyass Honey Badger don't give a shit.

    I love him as a player, and do not care about some smoke. It will cost him some draft status, but maybe getting in trouble now will force him to mature. He may have blown out a knee or something by playing this year and hurt his stock even more.

    I think he is too small to play fs, but could be a good playmaking cb and electric return man.

    Id love him in the second, where im praying he drops done too. Oday Aboushi in the first, or Teo but i doubt he'll be there, and him in the second would be brilliant.

    I don't think he necessarily has the speed or hips to be an elite CB. And I wouldn't want him out there at a position where other teams can just avoid him. I think with his instincts, he'd be a terror.

    And I know he is small, but the guy shows zero fear tackling big guys. If some of you think Webb can play safety, why not Mathieu?

    Left unanswered was whether he could adjust his game to take care of his assignment without help in an environment (NFL) where he won't have the talent disparity he enjoys most Saturdays at the college level.

    He might, he might not. But the film breakdown showed a ton of INT's, PD's, FF's, all in situations where he was one of 2-3 guys converging on the receiver, and was free to try and jump the route or go for the big hit, knowing that somebody was always right there to clean up -- which frequently they had to.

    He's a good football player, but he reminds me of Macho Harris -- a great Hokie, but not suited to the NFL. A lot of pre-draft nonsense about being a late first/early second. Nearly declared early then withdrew it.... wound up barely making the Eagles in 09 and now out of the league. Right now that's about what I see with Mathieu -- a really good, really talented football player who at least right now, is not a good fit for the NFL game.
    Totally agree.

    Excellent college player...prob not bringing a lot to the NFL table. At 5'9" and 175lbs you have to be a pretty special player to find a fit into an nfl defense.

    I think Mathieu is that special player that will succeed despite not having ideal size. If a guy like Jim Leonhard can find a way to get on the field with his measurables, so can Mathieu.

    When you make the plays he does, in the SEC, he is the type of guy that teams will find a way to get on the field.

    Some have said the stuff he had may have been legal in Louisiana. Maybe so.

    Even so, team rules are team rules. It's not against the law to be late for practice every day, but doing that will get you kicked off your football team.
