Tyrann Mathieu is a couple of years away from being eligible for the draft…but what the hell? It’s never too soon to start speculating about a guy right? The Vikings don’t figure to be very good in 2012 either, meaning they should have a fairly high pick in 2013, and if Mathieu is available? You never know. The Honey Badger could end up in purple.
As Mathieu showed in the SEC championship game against Georgia, he’s a weapon not just on defense but on punt returns too. His first big return of the second half went for a TD, and his second, though not a TD, was even more impressive. I don’t know about you but I’m on the Mathieu bandwagon.
