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.

steve smith was exceptional because of his speed and shiftiness, that's what made smith great and hard to cover.

Matthieu is just small, doesn't matter what his skills are the QB can simple throw a jump ball at the Reciever he's covering every time and win

Again not saying he doesn't have skill, he's just too small

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.

I thought you were saying he was a nickelback at LSU so thats why i said that. and there are plenty of undersized corners in the league. hell, there are hardly any 6', 6'1+ corners in the league. Get that mentality out of your head. The kid can play. We drafted munnerlyn, and this guy is leagues ahead of munnerlyn.

Yea that makes sense. Cause its against NCAA rules to do that, so he has to wait until the NFL for some coach to say, "hey, that guy is kinda short, lets make groundbreaking never-before-seen history and try to throw it over him and let the WR go up and get it"

Small, physical corners are just all the rage in the modern NFL.

we defantley need him, chris gamble cant play forever

So, Matthieu can make up Gamble's plays? Lol

If we need a future cb, Matthieu isn't the answer for sure.
