Deion Sanders Calls Tyrann Mathieu a "Leader," Appears Undaunted by the Drug Issues, Rehab Stint

Tyrann Mathieu – nee Honey Badger – is having a strong day at the Combine. His draft stock, which cratered after he was kicked off the LSU football team and entered rehab, is starting to rise again. After Mathieu ran a blazing fast 4.43 40 (unofficially), Deion Sanders gushed about the cornerback with the blonde mohawk who lifted 225 pounds just four times Monday. He’s got swag! So what if, just a couple months after rehab, he was arrested for “simple” drug possession?

There’s no brake-pumping with Deion. Swag! If he were a GM, you get the impression he’d draft Mathieu in the first round, maybe Top 10. While everyone likes Mathieu as a special teams playmaker and nickel cornerback, why would anyone take a first round flier on him? I’m thinking 3rd round, maybe late 2nd for a team that has a million draft picks (like San Francisco).
