You guys are fuging high. Even before his arrests and being kicked off of LSU, he wasn't going to go any earlier than a late second round, early third round pick. He's a fuging nickle corner who can return punts. He's not an every down corner.

Holy Christ people.

He could test very well at the combine and shoot up somewhat like Poe did. This kid has made more of a name for him self than Poe.

Not gonna make it covering Julio, White, VJax, Colston every Sunday

He'll be a pretty good nickle. Not no.1 or 2 cb. His covering skils can't even compare to Janoris

So you think he is so absorbed in marijuana that he cant be taught/coached/parented to leave the stuff at his apartment and to stop smoking around 2 months before the NFL administered street drug test?

yeah i'm by no means implying that he's "so absorbed in marijuana" that he can't be taught to not carry it on his person. previous events make me doubt he's learned how to not be an idiot about it is my problem.

i mean holy poo let one of your boys handle it.

love the way this guy plays the game, and think he is better suited to play the nickel role or FS.the guy is a ball hawk and has the balls to go vs anybody no matter who they are. had some issue with his parents and trying to figure out who was as a man, but this guy has the talent. would love to have him on this team.

Ohh my appologies. I didn't realize he was going to be drafted by a college team. I thought we were talking about the NFL here.

Poe has the physical measurables that are desired for his position and then he tested off the charts in the athletic tests.

Mathieu very well may test high on the athletic measurables but nothing is going to change the fact that he's an undersized corner with marginal, at best, coverage skills.

DO WANT. Dude is a game changer on defense. We saw last game how creating turnovers can win you the game.

in college, he's way undersized for the NFL he's a specialty PR kickoff guy at best.

He's 5'9 which is tiny and too small for the NFL

I couldn't disagree more. He is a playmaker. Think Steve Smith on defense. How many people said Steve Smith was too small to be a NFL WR, and a pro bowl WR at that?

Here is an excerpt from the article Kurb posted:

The NFL needs players like this. Mathieu is a versatile takeaway specialist who more than holds his own in coverage. He has loose hips, is a quick-twitch reactor, and could be an answer for the Wes Welkers and Percy Harvins of the NFL. For 5-foot-9, 175, Mathieu has noticeably long arms, giving him a big advantage for pass deflections. Long arms also come in handy for strips. Mathieu is a skilled and experienced blitzer off the edge. While some teams may struggle to "find a fit" for Mathieu in terms of positioning, a quality evaluator will identify him as a movable chess piece. A defender who impacts turnover margin, time of possession, and field position on a regular basis.
