Tyrann Mathieu could fit PERFECTLY in a Seahawks defense.

Discuss your thoughts about anything draft related. Mocks, College and Pro. Knock yourselves out!!! RATING: PG-13
  • The Defense the Seahawks have now looks eerily similar to LSU's defense, 2 seasons ago when Tyrann was in the Heisman running and finished 3rd.
    Two top flight corners, bringing Tyrann at nickle let him roam around and make plays, thats what he does. The year LSU went undefeated they could have easily lost 2 or 3 games alone had Tyrann not gotten strips or fumbles or interceptions at key moments.
    Hes not big enough nor is his coverage good enough to cover the elite receivers.
    But taking a chance on him as a nickle could be a perfect fit.
    with the L.O.B.
    Bring tyrann in nickle and he could make plays, hes fast enough to cover ANY speedy receiver he'd have to cover. And his return skills are unreal for when Leon isnt around anymore.

    His flaws are his character issues, and with a coach like pete, and the leaders on this team i dont think that would be an issue.

    Does anyone think this could be a legitimate draft option for the Seahawks?
    Maybe around late 3rd round or sometime in the 4th?

  • He's 5'9 and failed, I think it was, seven drug tests in a row and never made good on any of his promises. No way we should even think about him before the 5th or 6th round.

    What good is a "great" player if he never sees the field because he's always suspended?

  • I think he would be too. He's a dynamic "it" type who adds depth through to FS, NCB and CB. He's also physical and plays taller because of the physicality.

  • Taking up a roster spot while on suspension isn't a perfect fit to me.

  • he failed a drug test twice is what Les Said.
    I dont think they should base it on if he gets in trouble or not.
    When he gets drafted and if he messes up id cross that bridge when that happened.

  • Down at the One did a feature on him today. I think he could fit with the right control methods surrounding him. He has sky high potential but likes getting sky high. Difficult decisions all round.

  • Valuing a player and their character concerns are always tough to do as a fan since we never get the personal background info on those guys, but I love his style of play and his fit on this defense as a nickel guy. Count me in as someone who's willing to a chance with him. In what round I'll leave to the front office, but I think he's talented enough to land in the 2nd-3rd round without the off the field issues.

  • Guys is dumb as bricks. Just because he had a knack as a rover in college doesn't mean he would succeed at a real position in the NFL. Especially with lots of money and free time on his hands.

  • He was a dumb college kid, but if the worst thing he does is smoke pot, and as long as he doesnt do it after being signed somewhere i dont think its that bad.
    He moved in with Patrick Peterson and he was mentoring him for a while.

  • FWIW, Mathieu isn't all that great of a prospect. There was a report recently that said most NFL front offices grade him in round 4 or lower. Which is a relief to me, because when I was watching his videos last year I never figured out what all the fuss was about.

    At a light weight and standing just 5'9", I don't see him fitting here. And John Schneider has so far avoided "big names" that slip into the late rounds.

  • I'd just love to have TM7 on this team. But im biased.
    But i also genuinely think he'd fit a area on this team and upgrade it.

  • I agree. I like him or Nickell Robey as our starting nickel corner in 2013. Both are dynamic.

  • If I were you guys, I'd stay far away from him. He's not worth the hype. As some of you stated, he was only good roaming around or blitzing, both from the nickel position. He can't cover a corner route (even in the nickel) to save his life. Re-watch the 2011 BCSCG and watch Darius Hanks from Alabama bring this kid to school and take his lunch money from him for 60 straight minutes.

    Just so we're all clear, I'm not an LSU fan either despite being from Louisiana.

    Roll Tide. :lol:

  • I'd spend our lower 5th round or our 6th round pick on him for nothing else other than as Leon's replacement as the PR and KR. I'm guessing that he'd be pretty darn good as a gunner on the punt team and also one of the guys on the kick-off team.

    If he flushes out of the league, not much lost.

    He may only last for a season or two but he'd be exciting to watch in the return game for that year or two.

  • I would absolutely love to have Honey Badger on the Hawks. I would go as far as using our 3rd round pick for him. If anyone could coach him up, it's Pete. There is plenty of motivation around the Hawks locker room to guide him and keep him clean.

  • On the plus side, he already has nickname. Regardless of how stupid it is, at least we wouldn't have to put up with the classic, mind numbing, "Let's come up with a nickname for..." threads.
