Tyrann Mathiew to declare for the draft:
hey mb, i predicted that here after his last bust. venture the rd he will go in?
As far as NE is concerned, late round option (5-7) due to the missed time and off field issues.
I think the highest round he would go based on his combine performance would be 4th round due to the character flaws, and potential drug issues. I think realistically he will be taken in the 5-6th round.
hey nate, a lot of people here said th esame thing about jenkins. i hoped hed make it to mid second, but thought he would be picked end of rd 1 to 2.
mathieu i think will be picked between 2nd and 3rd rd, end of 7th (or even udfa) would be lovely :)
why did i say that abotu jenkins and mathieu, because i think some team wont risk losing what he could be to their team (his upside). he has several unique talents.
"At 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds, Mathieu lacks the prototypical size of an elite cornerback. Any team that selects him also may have to adjust its defensive playbook — Mathieu thrived at LSU, in part, because the coaching staff did not hesitate to use him all over the secondary. Mathieu even slid up as a linebacker to rush the quarterback at times."
Linebacker!!! I think some team will grab him by the 4th.
