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.
