    The Honey Badger

    Tyrann Mathieu is a must have, 3rd round on. I don't care if he is too small, he plays like a heat seeking missile, and I feel he has finally learned and his problems are behind him. This guy has a rare type of talent. passionate, relentless, fearless, and an absolute ball hawking stud. If that doesn't do it for you he is pure electricity in the return game. some will knock his coverage skills but that can be coached up, his god given football instincts you can not. Take a look at this video in it's entirety and tell me with a straight face you would not be happy to have him on this football team.

    Love how the guy plays. I don't see the Giants blowing a third rounder on an undersized CB though.

    I could see them picking him up in the 5th or 6th though if he's still available.

    3rd round on Krunch,,,,,anywhere from the 3rd to the 7th round. he is starting to be mocked in the 3rd though(walterfootball),,,his ball and return skills can not be denied,,somebody will take a flier on him.

    Oh he'll definitely be drafted. His Combine will determine where (imo).

    what's his forty time? any idea? I have found varying times,,nothing definite. I have heard he is slow,,but the tape suggests otherwise.

    I say no on this one. I think the guy had great potential in the college game, but he is undersized for a CB and got exposed against Alabama.

    not much of an arguement against him,,lots of college players have bad games against alabama, look at te'o against alabama.,,and on the flip side a lot of undersized players go on to have great careers. the point is the kid has value as a ball hawk AND return man. did you even watch the clip?

    I've watched every televised game he has played in, so I don't need to watch any clips. He has potential, but not in the 3rd IMO. I don't personally think we use a 3rd pick on him when we already have a return man, he couldn't stay clean or out of trouble when he knew his career in football depended on it, has been away from the game and isn't a very good cover corner. In college he had a knack for being at the right place and making some big plays, but I don't think that will carry over for him into the NFL. He would at least be an upgrade as a returner I guess and does have knack for making plays, just not sure it's a gamble I'd want to take.

    if you read my post I said anywhere from the 3rd round on,,meaning 3rd through 7th round. his ball hawking skills wont translate to the NFL? have you seen him strip the ball? that wont translate either? not sure I follow you at all,,sounds more to me that you are penalizing him for off field issues,,, he smoked weed, not sold crack and pimped ho's. he is a 20 year old kid who was dealing with a lot of pressure from new found fame. as far as return man goes..hixon might not be back,,and wilson will be the feature back next year,,so we need a return man,,,if we grabbed this kid in the 5/6/7th you would still be opposed? hey,,your entitled to your opinion.
