Former LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu has done his best at the NFL combine to change the perception is him and increase his draft stock before the actual draft. One of the aspects of the draft is the interview aspect with NFL teams. What you say to them can have a significant impact on your stock.
So now we have this quote courtesy of Mlive.com, where the honey badger decides to make it clear that he feel he can cover the best receiver in the game. Megatron.
“I feel like if I was to check somebody like a Calvin Johnson, he’ll make his plays, but I’m definitely going to get mine, too,” Mathieu said, via MLive.com. “He’s going to catch his five balls, but I’m going to get my two turnovers, so we’ll be even.”
Before people could get too crazy with the quote, Mathieu then took to his twitter account to make it clear that he has the utmost respect for Calvin Johnson.
“You got to understand I have theultimate respect for Calvin Johnson,” Mathieu tweeted. “He is a freak of an baller & the best in the game but I’m gon compete.”
At the end of the day, I can’t be upset at an athlete believing in themselves.
Regardless of whether or not I believe Mathieu actually can cover Megatron, it’s good that he believes he can.

player, despite spending the entire season on the sidelines after being
booted from the LSU football program. Unfortunately for Mathieu, his
Tyrann Mathieu was kicked out of LSU, and with another chance to make an impression on NFL executives and coaches, he again failed to impress.
Tyrann Mathieu had a nice day at the NFL Scouting Combine on Tuesday. It seems that the former LSU Tiger has already let it go to his head.
An NFL-caliber cornerback has to have swagger but he also has to have some common sense.
