At what round do you guys think he's worth a selection? I think if he's there in the late 4th- mid 5th round. Why not!
Issue's aside he fits well in our system, he will not be a NFL corner by any means but he can convert to Safety, and come down in the nickle.
If its any organization that can turn a guy around is this one.

wouldnt take him there but if he was there late 6th or so his special teams value alone is worth that

His behavior has been so bad. I just dont see the Giants being interested in him, he is not good at behaviing himself when a mic is put in front of him and in no city in the NFL does a guy get more mics put in front of his face. He has a history of being a twitter idiot too.

He has very suspect press cover skills and therefor isnt really a corner either. He was always the 2nd or 3rd cover option for LSU. They always had other corners to play against opposing team's #1 guy. 2012 was supposed to be the year we go to see this guy play more cover. In 2011, his postion was much closer to safety, which I dont think he is in the NFL. Big safeties are a must with TEs being used in the passing game more now than ever.
A year off from football is hard to recover from. Truthfully, it is more than a year, closer to 2. We have seen this with Marvin Austin. It adds just that much more risk to the equation. How long will it take for him to get back into football? if he ever does.The combine will help determine if he still has kept himself in shape, but it cant really helps us know if his football readiness will be there.
Finally, there are the drugs. There are a lot of reports that he was kicked for repeated drug offenses. After his dismissal from the team, he entered extended rehab only to quit 2 week later and return to school giving up any hope of returning to football for LSU in 2013. A month later he was arrested for possession. I am sorry, but this kids behavior is idiotic. I do not see it improving once he gets a lot of money in his wallet to do with as he pleases.
I know he was a ball hawk. I know he was exciting as can be. I just dont think he is a guy the Giants will want. His biggest value is as a return guy / special teamer.

I wouldn't touch Mathieu with a ten foot pole! Honestly he has tremendous athletic ability but he isn't that great of a corner as people have reported before and he's not physical enough to be a safety so that throws that out. The only reason he's worth looking at is because of his return skills, which the rookie combo of Wilson and Randle (excuse his last game) seems to working out well.

Matheiu has value on Special teams as a return man and a gunner. Guys can turn it around Will Hill has

Sometimes u just have a feeling, and that story about him having his helmet cut off and litteraly taking a cab back to the game( i think it was a cab?), and going through all the trouble to get back into a Jr College game, was what tipped my hat into his favor.. To me, that was all u needed to know about what kinda player and person he is, and how much he loves to be ont he field.. Most of these guys miss games like theres no tommorow ..
One of the most important things in a player is his desire to be on the field and how much he cares about being on the losing side.. If it dosen't eat em up , then i simply don't want em.. If a guy thinks its OK to take plays off, then i don't want em... JPP is a breed that is dying out, and whenever we have a chance to get a guy who hustles like him, i'm all for it.. U add in his physical tools, and its a no brainer..

Charlie Campbell's latest mocks out, and hes got a decent mock for us, all though i'm not fond of his 3rd rd pick of michael bucchanan de/olb illinois, when he had baccari rambo going 1pick later..
His 1st 2rds, i was more then fine with..
1. Tyler Eifert TE Notre Dame- I just mocked him 2 us in my latest mock..
2. Brennan Williams OT UNC- makes a ton of senese, and could be steal, as hes only dropping because of injury..
3. Michael Buccahan OLB/DE Illinois- Don't like it, and don't like the player much.. Not a ideal fit, especially with Baccari Rambo on the board still...

Anyone catch Khaseem Greene last night? That kid is freaking awesome!
11-30-2012 09:07 AM
Yeah he is a great player. That was a BS 15 yard penalty called on him. The guy was running full speed down the sideline and a piece of his foot went out. The guy keeps running full speed down the sideline Greene hits him and they throw a flag. How the hell was Greene supposed to see that, blow the whistle.

They fake a FG to DC Jefferson who scores a TD that would of made it 21-3 but its called back on a OLineman down field.
After Louisville makes it 14-10 they fumble the KO..
Next play Logan RYan has good coverage but the safety doesnt stick the WR with a hit for some reason and its caught for a TD.
Its 20-17 and Brandon Coleman reads Cover 3 "Which it is" Somehow Gary Nova doesnt see itand throws the ball downfield to no 1 that gets picked off .Coleman who read the defense right had 15-20 yards easy if Nova reads it right
