    Re: Draft stuff...Tyrann Mathieu



    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.

    He has reportedly visited McNeese State. Also, about 20 schools have inquired about him. There are some reports that he may sit out the year and return to LSU for the 2013 season. If that's the case, he won't be in the next NFL draft.

    Re: Draft stuff...Tyrann Mathieu

    If he got booted from the team for team violations...why would that same team take him back?

    His best bet is to transfer to a D-2 School and kick ass.

    It's highly unlikely that he'd ever be a 1st round pick anyway just due to his size.

    He's still a kid. I could see him at 190 - 195 come the Combine

    True, but again, he would have to be an exceptional player at corner to warrant a 1st round choice. Just my opinion, but it seems to me that 1st round corner backs are either physically gifted (Patrick Peterson, Dre Kirkpatrick, Jimmy Smith, etc) or exceptional players.

    Not a good example, (as he hasn't done much inthe NFL) but he's already better then Alphonso Smith was, IMO.

    I think he's more talented than Claiborne but nowhere close to Peterson both of which went pretty high.

    LSU has already said there is no truth to the reports that he may sit out a year and return. He was dismissed from the team permanently; better make that trip to N. Alabama

    Not true. There has been alot of misinformation being put out by the local newspapers. LSU's Assistant Athletic Director came out and said that Mathieu is not ineligible permanently. He is just ineligible at LSU for this season. However, he still is deciding between going to McNeese or Nicholls State, ala L. Webb, or possibly coming back to LSU next year. It's still a fluid situation so things may change. McNeese did start classes on Wednesday though. Mathieu did have a phone conversation with Miles earlier in the week but he didn't say what it was about. I just thought I would shed some light on the situation.

    "He's permanently ineligible to play football at LSU," Bahnsen said in a telephone interview Monday afternoon. "That's definite. That's what was said Friday."
