Tyrann Mathieu hosting draft party, backs off flyer saying he will be 1st-round pick

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...
