The draft

Why is everyone slobbering over Mathieu's combine? His bench press aside...he ran a 4.50. A good time, but not a time that stands out whatsoever. There are a ton of DBs that ran better than that and yet Mathieu is praised for his combine performance. Is this just considering he didn't play at all last year? Like people were pleasantly surprised that he was able to stay in shape or what? I honestly am baffled so hopefully someone can clear that up.

His shuttle times were good and his ball skills were really on display. He also showed great change of direction, hip fluidity and hands.

He's a very talented kid, but the lack of long speed, height in addition to the res flags are going to hurt him.

What sold me was Deion Sanders said he is the real deal. He has the IT factor.

i seriously doubt he would attach his name to someone that would not stand up to the endorsement.

If Mathieu is available in the 4th then sure, but not before then.

That is the dumbest comment I have ever heard. Darrell Green was 5' 8" Obviously you didn't watch the combine. This guy did really well.

Last time. Don't attempt to insult me cause you don't agree... GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

So hostile when approached with logic and reason, and not just slobbering over your fav player. Sorry you don't agree, but Ty isn't a top five guy, not even close. No legend you bring up will change Mathieau's skillset.....

I watched every second of the combine minus the LB workouts. While he did well in coverage drills, his 40 time was pretty average for a top five corner. More then that though, I watched enough LSU games to know Mathieau struggles in man to man coverage, which is why there is NO chance in hell he would go top five (character concerns or not). He's a 5'9 guy who has a knack for being around the ball, he lacks elite speed and coverage ability, those aren't the qualities of a top five draft pick at CB.....

OH I see since you are the noted authority on football no one else knows anything. The only reason his stock fell was because of the off the field issues. GFY on the slobbering comment.

You aren't even worth the extra effort to argue with. The guy might slide to the second round but regardless he will become a top corner in this league.

AND YES HE WOULD HAVE BEEN A TOP 5 to 10 but since he is a badboy we'll never know.

Yeah Right,,, that is why he was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy. You may have had the channel on but you weren't paying attention. Just like the combine you must have been watching but not paying attention

I AM DONE WITH YOUR HATRED AND STUPIDITY... YOUR DISMISSED

Heisman runner ups and winners aren't guaranteed to be top NFL players.

Jason White won a Heisman too....also it's you're as in "I'm really not sure why you're so upset". If you can't take people disagreeing with your opinion maybe a message board isn't the best way to utilize your ISP....

But he plays in the SEC and forces fumbles! OMG that must mean he's a shutdown corner!! I would LOVE to see Mathieu man to man with Megatron....LOVE...

I'd like to see him as a FS.

I agree, he's not good in man to man situations but plays the zones pretty well, and knows how to find the ball. Would make a good ball hawking FS in my opinion.
