Not very good examples. Sanders played SS and is a lot bigger and muscular then what Mathieu is and as for Leonhard he has been on 4 teams in 8 years.

If Mathieu were still around in the 4th or 5th round and we've addressed the rest of our needs I would pull the trigger on taking him in a heart beat. Yes the guy has had some issues but we have a lot of veterans in the locker room, he could have a very high cap on his potential and could turn into a very good gamble for us!

absolutely, kelso. Gamble and potential sum up the "honey badger."

A few years ago, I thought he was going to be a top 10 pick. Just incredible play as freshman or sophomore at LSU. I was wrong about that, regardless of off-field stuff, his size alone knocks him out of that draft range.

But where we stand now, why not risk a 4th or 5th on someone with this much upside?

His skillset (lack of size and speed) will only allow him to be a nickelback in the NFL IMO. But he has the potential to be one hell of a nickelback due to his fantastic instincts and ball skills.

He's a good fit for this team since y'all probably need a nickelback.

Someone earlier posed this point. Mathieu doesn't seem to regret smoking weed and suggested that the reason he was able to quit was lack of cash.

What if we draft him and he starts smoking weed again. Then he gets Gordon to join him in a little toke here and there. Then we could lose one of our most potent offensive weapons because we drafted this knucklehead.
What if dogs chewed your shoes because shoes are the last thing you put on before you leave?

I don't think we'll get a nickel or a dime back if we bag him in the draft. I'd just pass (to the left?).
