Default Tyrann Mathieu, anyone?

Maybe he's learned his lesson(s) and grown up? Second day prospect?

Football wise, he's an interesting prospect. Risk wise.... UDFA if I'm the GM.

Oh, I am too. I'm thinking a possible starter in 2014 (along with Wright, Jammer moves to you know where). 4th rounder?

That was my cute way of saying he's just a nickel in the NFL, not a good outside corner. And 7th.

This whole thread is my cute way of saying there's not a whole lot worth talking about right now. And you're probably right. 5'9" not blazing fast, but interesting, nonetheless. I'll cap my bidding at 5th round!

Yeah definitely worth talking about. I have just never liked him near as much as most. Even before he got busted, I thought he was a 2nd-3rd round nickel corner.

And the pot itself isn't necessarily prohibitive, it's more the inability to correct bad choices. These guys know they're getting tested, they know they're under the microscope, and so when they still do it I think they're really arrogant and stupid. When they do it again after getting caught, I think they're morons. Mathieu strikes me as the type of player that will always have his name popping up for the wrong reasons.

UDFA.

Chances are he signs with the Broncos because of the law they just passed there though..

If the chips fall where I'd like them to, we'll finish rounds 1-3 with 2 OLs and a pass rusher. In that case, I wouldn't mind taking a bit of a risk on someone like Mathieu. As well as splurging on areas not quite as needy when there's a high enough ceiling.

He'll be gone in the 2nd. He was a top 10 pick before he missed the season.
