Apparently, being an NFL Draft hopeful from LSU and also getting in trouble with the law aren’t mutually exclusive things.
That’s because in the midst of an NFL Draft where one of the biggest questions remains where Tyrann Mathieu will be selected after a slew of failed drug tests and an October arrest, another former Bayou Bengal was in the news and in the police blotter on Thursday night.
That man is Tharold Simon, who saw his stock rapidly rise last fall, ironically, thanks in large part to Mathieu’s removal from the team. With Mathieu’s suspension and Morris Claiborne’s departure to the pros, it allowed Simon to move from a role as a nickel cornerback into the starting lineup, where he led LSU with four interceptions in 2012.
Good times! Well, until Thursday night anyway, when just hours before Simon was set to get drafted, the Eunice, LA native was arrested Thursday night for allegedly threatening a police officer.
BEST OF MAXIM
Former LSU cornerback and NFL draft prospect Tharold Simon is facing possible charges in his hometown of Eunice for his alleged treatment of a police officer who ordered Simon to move his parked car out of the street.
Simon's agent, Peter Schaffer, disputes police accounts and says the officer overacted in a ''shameful'' abuse of power.
According to a police...
Former LSU cornerback and draft hopeful Tharold Simon was reportedly arrested on Thursday night in his hometown of Eunice, LA.
Tyrann Mathieu may not have been selected Thursday in the first round of the NFL Draft (it was in Round 3 to Arizona ), but at least the Honey Badger can take comfort in knowing that he didn't have the worst night among LSU defensive backs hoping to go pro.

Tharold Simon was arrested on the day of the 2013 NFL Draft, but his agent says the former LSU defensive back has done nothing wrong.
It was already a bad enough idea for Tyrann Mathieu to host an NFL Draft party. When you have a reputation for having off-field problems that include a past marijuana addiction, being a party guy is not the image you wan’t to portray. But it’s also questionable when the flyer bills you as a “1st Round Draft Pick.”
Mathieu posted a picture to Instagram Wednesday of a flyer...

As we are less than a day away from the 2013 NFL Draft, former LSU safety Tyrann Mathieu is one of the college football prospects hoping to have his name called.
Mathieu will be in New York City before the start of the draft and it appears that he will be throwing a party before the start of the draft.

Former LSU defensive back Tyrann Mathieu, aka the Honey Badger, must know something that the rest of us do not. How else can you explain why the man is holding a Draft Day party on Thursday?
Now had he played last season and all his troubles not come to light no one would think a thing about it. Assuming he would have played like he did two seasons ago he likely would...

Our last images of Geno Smith from day one of the draft were of Smith sitting in Radio City Music Hall waiting for his name to be called looking extremely uncomfortable. He didn’t even have an ensemble...

So, the NFL Draft is a day away (Thu.) and everyone who's ever written a sports related story or talked about it on the radio has come up with their own "Mock Draft".
We don't partake in such trivial matters here at OSG Sports, but we do find some of the speculation absolutely fascinating.
Kind of like the picture you see to your...
