The Official Tyrann Mathieu Bandwagon Thread (2013 Draft)

I think he would make a great box SS IMO. He plays a lot bigger than his size. He can make tackles in run support and be very effective in zone blitz's. The problem I would worry about is his durability at that position.

Agreed. And he may be playing with a chip on his shoulder in the NFL so that may intensify his playmaking.
15 picks. I think it's safe to say Alex is gone. I think we have too many picks not to take a gamble on him. I think he has too much talent, in a position we are in need of. I'll take in the 3rd
Imagine him in the slot with Tarell Brown and Chris Culliver on the outside! Safety's Eric Reid and Donte Whitner.....

Dashon Goldson will walk IMO
After this combine.. I want him more than any other in this draft!!
I will absolutely go nuts if we get this kid!!
He will have Ed Reed type ball skills and maybe rookie of the year!
Calling it right now!!
Yup in this passing league he is a great special teams player and nickle/ dime player in the slot I say we draft this kid in the 4th a ball hawk
With his size and low upper body strength, combined with speed and fluid movement...he projects as a slot corner for us I think. We use our safeties in run support an awful lot. I would take him if he slid to the 4th.

My memory could be wrong but wasnt Mathieu the more highly coveted prospect at the beginning of the season and then Claiborne stole the show and rocketed up to the top CB available? Just from watching LSU the past couple seasons, Claiborne is my pick of the three solely because he is the purest cover corner but any of them would be great in our backfield.

Dont get me wrong, I would like Honey Badger to be a niner but he will go way before we pick next year at #32. (lol dammit someone beat me to it as I was typin)

From what I heard HoneyBadger won a scholarship at an LSU camp with his tenacity but wasn't really highly recruited. Don't you think he would be more mellow?

Ed Reed? Seriously? I said I'd take him in the 3rd but I won't be surprised if he goes in the 2nd now. I'm not really turned off by the low bench press number. He can get stronger and will probably be so at a pro day but what does alarm me about the low number is that he has had a ton of free time over the last year. What was he doing with it?

He would be fun to watch in a 9er uniform and I think the defensive leadership could could help keep him on the right path. Plus he is a bad arse special teams player, which they need bad.

Lol no doubt. Seriously though..this kid is a gamer, playmaker.. We need someone like him. Return specialist and nickel guy his rookie year..could be a difference maker.
This is my wish list.
Do what we need to do to get Revis in free agency, if not P Harvin. One or the other. They make offense and or defense that much better and very scary.
Second let Soap and Rodger walk (only if we got Revis), resign RJF and D Gholston! Maybe bring in a guy like Chris Canty (has always held his own and is under estimated) in my eyes.
Let Moss come back if cheap. Let D. Walker go. I like him alot, very versatile BUT he has dropped alot of critical passes that hit him in his hands. Maybe look at JaMichael Finley if let go. Seen this man's college career at Texas..Ginn is gone and so is Kyle Williams.

Now draft.

make every move posible to move up to get Shreiff Floyd. This is what we are missing to help get Aldon lose. This dude is the next SAPP!!!
if we cant move up and settle where we are.
round 1- Marcus Hunt All around gamer that will get better and block field goals plus we need beef there
round 2-Tyrann Mathieu, plugs a hole and return man if needed-i think this man learned his lesson and every human deserves a second chance!
round 3-reciever
round 4 DL or Saftey

Again this is what i want but doubt i see it happen...
^ Sorry I like Tyrann but not till the 4th round. I would settle with a late 3rd comp pick but no way I am spending a second rounder on him.
