The Official Tyrann Mathieu Bandwagon Thread (2013 Draft)

This. Denard fell pretty badly last year and he's been pretty decent, moreso than I expected. I think Mathieu has all the talent and athleticism to be a very good slot corner in the NFL.
LOVE THIS KID AS OUR RETURNER NEXT YR
He's 5 9 runs a 4.6 and gets turned around like cray. He hasn't played football on the big stage in a.year so I'm sure he's undertrained. Maybe 5th rd. Sad thing is I'm SEC fan from Arkansas and this kid struck fear into the hearts of every offense. His ceiling was limitless and now I wouldn't be surprised if he went undrafted.

I seen him play in person. He is very, very quick and aggressive. His game is a lot like Cortland Finnegan.
He got caught up in the college b******t man. He remains one hell of a player who luckily will be available to us. I would should interest in him starting in the second round. He will be high on other teams boards as well. Especially after Janoris Jenkins did so much for the rams last year after some similar if not worse off the field issues.
I think he best fits as a nickel corner to play those quick slot WR's in Amendola, Randall Cobb, Harvin, and others. His value on special teams would be effective to. He plays a lot bigger than his size and like I said I want him in the 4th or 5th round with all the picks we enter the draft with. It is not like 13 players we draft are going to make the team anyway.

Made me tear up a little.
Obviously the talent is there. Where would you pull the trigger? I'd make the move in the fourth. If we get a high pick in return for Alex Smith (third round), I'd pull the trigger even higher. He could come in and be an immediate contributor. Having Brown, Rogers, Culliver, Cox, and Mathieu would be a very strong group of corners.
Harbs will draft him and he will kick ass

We probably would not have to worry about looking for a return specialist either. Let James do the KR's and let Mathieu do the PR's.
Why not take a chance on the guy? I am confident we can keep this guy off the mary jane (even though we are in San Fransisco) because of the coaching staff and the high character guys on this team.

Not a big fan of this guy, but this bit of news is positive.

He's undergoing regular drug testing from an anonymous, but certified, testing company. By the time of the combine, he will have had 32 tests to show the NFL that he's clean, Lawlor said.

For the next two weeks, he's in Arizona with Peterson Jr., who is putting him through some intensive drills to prepare him for life as a cornerback in the NFL. He's a solid 182 pounds, his eyes are bright, and his presence exudes a spirit of calm resolve.
