Why the New Orleans Saints should draft Tyrann Mathieu

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I WISH TYRAN COULD HELP IN RUN SUPPORT BUT WITH 4 REPS @ 225 shows significant weakness or lack of work ethic one of the two so either way its a red flag in run support....

Re: Why the New Orleans Saints should draft Tyrann Mathieu

I think this is a typical homer article. No one outside of this area would be making a pitch like that.

It's one thing to get busted for weed once, but to get caught multiple times when there is so much on the line, you have to be a complete and total knucklehead. I say no knuckleheads allowed.

Re: Why the New Orleans Saints should draft Tyrann Mathieu

Yall have to remember he is a honey badger, they dont give a sh!t and they take what they want. That is their M.O. Honey badgers dont learn from thier mistakes, they are not genetically evolved to do so. They do what they want, when they want, and how they want to do it, no matter the consequences because there are no consequences.

You see, that word does not even compute in the badgers mind, so ask yourself this questions fans, owners, coaches, do you want a honey badger in your locker room?

I agree. I was a FAN when he was playing at LSU. The kid was a play maker, plain and simple. But this whole weed thing just got nuts. Like you said, with so much on the line, you couldn't just not do it? Definition of a moron!

Re: Why the New Orleans Saints should draft Tyrann Mathieu

what risk... he is a great talent and at worst we are talking about losing a 3rd rounder... lol

As far as his size goes... it wont make him any worse than Jenkins or Harper, arguably the two worst cover safeties in the NFL. So ill say it again, what risk? ? ? We can only get better lol

You're right. If he didn't go to LSU, not one single person would be talking about us drafting him.

Don't want him.

Re: Why the New Orleans Saints should draft Tyrann Mathieu

I disagree Danno. We all should know I am the biggest LSU supporter on this board(more than I am a Saints fan)... but if you look at the tape and how big of an impact he made on the biggest stage of college football, regardless of what school he went to, he deserves the consideration he's getting for a mid round pick.

I don't see an issues of putting him within the likes of Antoine Winfield and/or better than the likes of Bob Sanders. Coming out of college, regarding the likes of Bob Sanders who was a second round pick, there's no comparison if we're talking about production on center stage.

Whether anyone believes this or not, this is absolutely with no bias. I have no issue evaluating a player from any conference or any team. Not a single person can take away what Mathieu did for LSU. To be even considered for the Heisman as a cornerback, it speak volumes.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

I don't see it happening but the guy is a play maker but Tyran needs to get away from New Orleans and start fresh.

Papz, I'm an LSU/SEC Fan and I gotta tell you as a Saints Fan, don't want him and his game is not suited to the pro game; think Reggie Bush...

In college, you can outrun most of the competition; in the pros, well, you just had a former seventh round, now maybe third round pick offensive tackle, 6' 5", 306# run a forty time of 4.71!

And so it comes down to size and he's gonna get clobbered; remember the NFL passing game rules...

Heisman Perspective: Danny Wuerffel (God Bless Him!) won...

Heisman Perspective: Charles Woodson won out over Peyton Manning?!?

I'm not busting chops, it's just the Heisman is a F***ING JOKE as far as I'm concerned and is little more than a sports trivia category...
