So what do you guys think of him? Can he be a #1 CB next year? Personally, I don't think he's up there with the best CB's in recent years like Peterson and Claiborne, but he's still good.

Also, do you think his size will shy teams away from him?

Unfortunately for Mathieu his height is going to be something that scares off a lot of NFL teams. He's listed at 5'9 which is already on the shorter side for CBs, but I'm willing to bet he's even shorter than that. With all of the big receivers that play on the outside now he may be limited to only playing in the slot, and even with his knack for making the big play a slot CB/Rover will never warrant a high pick.

I think more and more teams are going to view guys who can play in the slot as being more valuable now than ever before.

A lot of guys who have the size to match of with perimeter guys like Calvin, AJ, Fitz etc don't have the necessary quick movements to match up with guys like Wes Welker or Victor Cruz in the slot.

Having someone who can play the slot limits a team's ability to move the chains.

Take the Patriots for example,

The fact that last year they had no outside WRs worth mentioning, if teams could slow Welker down then they could focus on Gronk and Hernandez which limited their effectiveness.

Yet teams who had very good perimeter CBs failed to slow the offense down because of the damage Brady could do underneath.

It's a completely different game these days. It's not two WRs, a TE, a FB and a RB. If you can't match up against 4 or 5 WR sets then you will struggle defensively.

I'm not sure Mathieu will be a high pick but he should carve out a niche for himself in the NFL thanks to his playmaking ability and competitiveness.

Honey Badger don't give a damn what you guys think.


Someone had to say it. On a serious note, Antoincd made a good point. Teams play multiple receiver sets. It's just as important to cover the slot guy as the guy outside the numbers. They're the ones who move the chains. There are a lot of cb's who don't like to and aren't very good at covering slot guys. I'd love to get Honey Badger on the Pats. We'll take him at 32 if the rest of you guys don't want him:happy:

Nickel DB who might have to play FS in the NFL as well as special teams. I love his playmaking ability, but there is no way I trust him on the boundary against an elite WR.

I don't see how you can discout his height and weight when he plays bigger and stronger than every single corner in the country, bar none.

I think as a college player, he is extremely overrated. I said it in another thread but much of his hype is from his nickname. If people called him the Platypus rather than the Honey Badger, he wouldn't have been invited to New York for the Heisman ceremony. As for the NFL, I think he needs to be ready for a long fall. His size is certainly not great. And when you are that small, your timed speed better make up for it. I don't think he is a 4.4 guy. I expect him to run in the mid 4.5s, similar to what Joe Haden did at the combine. Plus I expect his production to decrease this season. Add that together and I think he is at best a late-second round pick who would be foolish to come out early.

Two things. Even if you don't think he can play cb.

1. A nickel back is a starter in today's NFL. The 4-2-5 is the base defense in the league. Not the 3-4 or 4-3. I'm pretty sure he can do that. And, do it well. Because it allows him to free lance a little.

2. He might be the best punt returner to come out of college since Devin Hester.

I like this kid. He just makes plays. There is something to be said for someone who is always around the ball and isn't afraid of the spotlight. I don't think he's quite the prospect some will make him out to be but he will have a nice career in the NFL.

05-03-2012, 09:56 AM
I think he's a 4.3-4.4 guy. He's super talented, but all of that doesn't come from his coverage ability. He'll be one of the top CB's in the draft most likely, but I would imagine teams that run out of the nickel a lot will value him more than others. I do think he can play outside though and he's got play-making ability. He's probably going to be a solid 2nd round prospect for sure, but I imagine he'll end up in the 1st.

Big Bird
05-03-2012, 10:07 AM
I think he might be better off on offense to be honest. Let's not kid ourselves with what we are looking at. His long speed is average at best. I would expect 4.5's to a 4.6 forty. That's okay on offense because you don't have to worry about somebody running by you for 6.

His quickness and field vision is what makes him special with the ball in his hands. The guy is pint sized. Let's not confuse him with Troy Polamalu. Troy had 30 lbs. on the guy and at least an inch. Mathieu is tough, aggressive, and tackles well, but is he really going to be able to maintain that success at the next level with his size?

There is a reason why LSU uses him as a slot guy and safety only. You won't see him on an island because his coverage skills aren't good enough. Generally when he plays the slot, he isn't even in true man-to-man coverage. He is playing either inside or outside, and relying on a safety to take care of the other side.

Basically the Tim Tebow of defensive prospects in my opinion. Awesome college player, one of the best ever. But logically, nothing points to this guy being successful in the NFL, no matter how much you root for him...

Pure playmaker, but I need an official height/weight/speed on Mathieu to slot him.


If he's really 5'9, that's on the short side for a corner. If he's barely 5'8, he's a nickle corner for most teams.

If Mathieu can get his weight up to 185-190# before the combine, that's great. Hopefully he's at least a 4.5 flat 40 guy.

THere's a role on most defenses for a guy with Mathieu's skills, but I think he might be best suited to play FS.
He could be a Bob Sanders type player in the NFL.

What is so "aggressive" about him as a corner? That he tackles? Mathieu rarely plays press coverage.

Cortland Finnegan is an athletic freak who punches wide receivers in the mouth off the snap. There is no comparison whatsoever.

Are you kidding? The dude was a dominant playmaker.

I think he'll be great in a slot/safety role, where he can blitz, roam, and play the football. You're wasting his talents if you line him up man to man on the outside every play.

His hands and return ability is nice, he's dangerous with the football, but he has 11 forced fumbles and 6 sacks in 2 years ( 26 games, 14 starts)

05-03-2012, 12:06 PM
It doesn't bother me at all that he is going to be a nickel corner. Teams are in nickel or dime more than their base packages. He's a playmaker with the feistiness I love.

I'm not saying he could get drafted in the first, but I could see him as high as the second if he does well at the combine and third if he doesn't. Drafting a potential playmaker like him in the second or third is great value. I think he has to fit the team's system though, he has to be allowed to be a playmaker.

This is silly. It's becoming more and more popular for people to call him overrated these days, which will end up making him underrated. 2nd rounder??? LOL. He's a 1st round lock. I agree with those saying that even if he is limited to being a nickel corner, he will still have a lot of value. It's obvious to anyone paying attention that teams are forced to adjust for multiple WR sets by playing much more nickel and dime defensive formations. Base defenses might only be played 30-50% of the game.

The Honey Badger is such a big time playmaker, that he breaks the mold of contemporary thinking when it comes to grading measurables. He's 19 years old. His career NFL playing weight will be much different.

I never really gave that any thought, but playing him on offense actually makes a lot of sense. Not to say he would strictly be an offensive player, but he could be a unique 2 way player.

...and yes, he's not a guy you want to leave on an island.

I think this year will be extremely telling. Way to go out on a limb, I know.

The amount of db talent LSU is pushing out right now is crazy. He would be an out of this world talent if he could have unseated both Peterson and Claiborne the past two years. They were both the more experienced players ahead of him. Playing with guys like that allowed him to be the gambler big play guy. Now he should get the spotlight as a true number one, so let see how he does. That being said, I am not an expert on lsu, but there may be a young super blue chip prospect at corner ready to step into that role instead. If I were that kind of recruit, why not go to lsu right now?

As an aside, if you are looking for a super physical corner, you have to go ty law. Dude just manhandled receivers. Some people would argue he single handedly caused polian to go on his quest to dumb down nfl defenses. This guy caught more passes from peyton in a playoff game than harrison did.

If I'm the Jets, I'm looking at him as a good match up for Wes Welker.

As long as Revis is a Jet and Welker is a Pat (and they're both playing at the same level they have been the last few years) I think that's the matchup you'll see. That's what they've been doing the past few years and unless the Pats get two utterly dominant outside receivers, Cro and Wilson should be fine there. The Jets really need to focus on trying to find guys who can cover Gronk and Hernandez to match up better with the Pats...but obviously that's easier said than done.

That said, if the Jets for some reason don't have all three of those corners, Mathieu would be an interesting option as a slot guy and occasional safety. Think Ryan and Pettine would use him very effectively and as good as the defense is, adding a playmaker wouldn't hurt.

bornnraisedwhodat
05-03-2012, 01:20 PM
This guy is a playmaker. Watched every LSU game last year, and you can always count on TM to make the plays, be it punt return, pick 6, forced fumble, etc.

He will get exposed as parameter CB, so I doubt he will make it in the 1st round. But teams will def value him as a nickle CB or cover safety. His height will hurt him but not as much as you guys think.

Not a 1st rounder though.

05-03-2012, 02:22 PM
As many others have pointed out Mathieu is a playmaker. He may not have the size yet but the man is 19 years old (turning 20 on may 13th), hes got room for improvement both in size and in technique.

He may not be your classic outside shutdown corner, but he is an excellent defensive back who can cover, tackle, blitz and take the football away consistently.

And as a bonus he's a great special teams player ala Joshua Cribbs who just doesn't return kicks but he's also a great gunner. I think a team like the Ravens, Steelers, Pats or Packers will be very happy to get him once he decides to turn pro.

I'm not sure Mathieu will be a high pick but he should carve out a niche for himself in the NFL thanks to his playmaking ability and competitiveness.

This is exactly my take on it. I like his style, and don't think his size is as much of a concern as it might have been a few years ago; the transition to a more wide-open passing game throughout the league means smaller players in more prominent roles. No, you're not necessarily going to want him on an island on the outside (although, let's be honest - we're only projecting him when we say that, and he could always play better than expected), but for the kind of guys who work the slot, the Victor Cruzs and Wes Welkers of the world, it doesn't hurt to have a defensive slot specialist to match up with an offensive slot specialist. Not to mention he's going to go balls-out on every nickel blitz that gets called for him and offers real value on special teams both as a returner and a gunner.

Certainly not in the Revis/Peterson category, but even Revis isn't huge. Realistically, we might be talking about a Brandon Flowers kind of cornerback. If you're drafting him to be your no. 1 corner you might be overrating him, but if you're expecting him to be a high-intensity matchup corner and return man I think he's a guy a team would feel pretty good about picking in the second, and depending on how this next year goes, he could sneak into the late first. Defensive backs are increasingly important, and I think if guys like Jerrell Jernigan, Randall Cobb, Percy Harvin, etc. are starting to be picked in the late first/second, the guys who line up across from them are going to merit being picked in the same range; I too see nickel corners beginning to be more and more of an actual position teams scout specifically for.

Caulibflower
05-03-2012, 02:56 PM
^ And I'll just add I know Jernigan was actually a third round pick, but there was a lot of second-round chatter about him and I'm pretty sure I saw him mocked to the Jets at the end of the first a couple of times, so I'm talking about perceived value here.

Kid is def going first round. Easy. Just an absolute playmaker, and although not a great guy to leave alone, he still is very aggressive, great tackler, can blitz, just a real X factor type of player.

All this too small talk really depends on the system he is in. Brent Grimes is listen at 5'10 and Ive seen him in person and no way is he taller than 5'8, doesnt run a 4.4 but still made the pro bowl and is a pretty good corner. Yes he can jump thru the roof but he just is there to make plays just like Honeybadger.

And obviously as an added bonus hes a hell of a return man and weve seen how valuable those can be over the course of a game/season exp with field position.

Caulibflower
05-03-2012, 03:40 PM
Yeah, Brent Grimes is kind of an interesting guy to point out, too. I mean, I think I'd be a little more concerned about Mathieu's size if I thought it meant he'd be a poor tackler, but that's obviously not the case - he might be known more as a big hitter than anything else. (At least, that's typically what I've seen.) Grimes isn't known for that, and he's still a successful starter. You know who else I thought of who might be a really good comparison?

Antoine Winfield. + return ability.

I think there's going(and is)to be way too much made about what he can't do in the NFL. You can't put him outside in man coverage. You can't put him in man on bigger slot receivers. Don't get me wrong, those are completely fair pieces of criticism that limits his value quite a bit. We're probably projecting giving him a late first/early second round ceiling right off the bat because of that. He's simply not the kind of guy you draft to fix your coverage unit on his own. He's a luxury type pick for a good defense that can move him around and put him in positions where he isn't overmatched with size. He'll help against shiftier slot receivers and in deep zone, where his primary responsibility will be to track the ball. His knack for creating turnovers and big plays is just too valuable to completely dismiss.

Don't forget, he offers an immense amount of value as a punt returner too. I would be interested to see how he did with kickoffs. You can probably use him on punt/kickoff coverage units as well.

Right. "Shutdown corner?" Maybe not. Will a creative defensive coach like to have a guy like that to line up all over the field to take out a teams' slot receiver, blitzing, or disguising coverages by having him drop back to free safety while the free safety steps up into man? Absolutely. If you're got Darrelle Revis covering Hakeem Nicks and Cromartie over Rueben Randle, you're still got to have a guy cover Victor Cruz, and it may be more important to have a player who can make a quick, sure tackle or create a sharp pop as the ball arrives than someone who's going to highpoint a deep ball.

I like the Brent Grimes comparison. He doesn't hit like a truck like Winfield. That would be Brodrick Brown.

It's funny because for a while I thought he was in this draft and I was like, "Do people really think he's a top 5 corner?" Claiborne definitely was, though. Mathieu, however, is not that great. He'll be solid. LSU has good CB pedigree, but he won't be anything amazing. His cover skills really aren't that impressive. He's just very opportunistic (to his credit).

Put him in the slot and have him return kicks. He will be a stud in the NFL. He is just too talented. The dude just simply makes plays whenever he is around the ball. He obviously has flaws, but you can't knack the playmaking ability. I would group hug Gregg Williams and Jonathan Vilma to get him on the Vikings.

This is probably a big part of the reason why he is viewed so negatively right now. He played one of his worst games in the biggest spot of the season coverage wise, I think he's a better cover corner than he's getting credit for right now. Regardless he has every secondary characteristic you wish your DB's had, and a lot of it is the stuff you simply can't teach. If I was a GM I'd be willing to bet a late first on this guy. Throw him in a role exactly like Charles Woodson and you could have something special. For a team that is short on playmakers this guy could be a steal.

Tyrann Mathieu is a guy I am not so sure about. I Love him as a Playmaker but hate him as a Corner. I think this year will be big for him because he is either going to get completely abused by Number One WR's or he might show he is a Cover corner.

He just seems like a punk though and the media hype is getting bad, I remember watching the NC Game and the announcers were like "Honey Badger doesn't Care" and I was like yeah he does when Alabama is killing him on the biggest game of the year. I think having Claiborne be the Shutdown guy made him more able to have those game changing plays but I see him as to much of a gambler and a Play I remember in the NC Game where Maze where he tried to strip the ball but Maze dragged him for about five yards.

I see alot of people here are saying he should be a Nickle Corner but what about Safety? He could be a Troy Polamalu type of player that can be used on Blitzes or an Ed Reed and just wait for a bad pass and get a pick, he can uses his return ability once he gets a pick to become a Reed or Eric Berry with the ball.

05-04-2012, 10:22 AM
I don't think its as black and white to say he's a slot guy, or a safety, or a nickle back etc but he's going to get a role in the NFL. A good DC will get him on the field as much as possible be it in the slot, a rusher from outside the tackle box, a deep safety, a rover in big nickle packages etc. Most teams would kill for a playmaker on defense. For some reason I think INTs are undervalued by some guys, along with return yardage from said INTs. The ball gravitates towards Mathieu. I would be ok with using a late first one him easily

The thing a lot of people don't seem to get with Mathieu is that it's not that he's short. It's that he's NOT GOOD IN COVERAGE.

He makes a lot of plays so he does have value. And guys who are fungible WRs but really good return men tend to go in round 3. So he's probably a second rounder. That's not saying he's a bad player

He was a true sophmore who was above average in that respect for most of the season, then in ONE game with everyone watching he struggled a bit, so now everyone just thinks he can't cover at all. The guy was in great positions in coverage for most of the season while operating in a huge variety of spots on the field in zone and man coverages.

I think everybody saw the national championship game and look at the size thing, and basically think that Mathieu is all hype, but it's really not the case.

I mean, he was on the field for an amazing defense all year. He was obviously an asset. But there are tons of good college players every year who don't translate quite as well to the NFL and his coverage skills were his weakness even before the NC. Remember he was playing in a backfield with Morris Claiborne, Eric Reid and Brandon Taylor.

I'm going to go on record to say regardless of what people think of him, he's going to go in the first round of the draft.

I wanna see how he plays without Claiborne before I make a judgement. You have to love the constant timely play making, but I want to see it when teams can prepare for him.

I love how when a player does something really well, he MUST be bad at the other things. He is not bad in coverage.
