The Honey Badger will enter the 2013 NFL Draft and could be a huge risk/reward type candidate for a team in need of a corner and return specialist. Tyrann Mathieu showed that he is an explosive playmaker last season with LSU, but he was suspended for the season for a substance abuse issue. He was also arrested last month on a possession of marijuana charge. He has his issues off the field but is explosive on the field.
If AJ Smith is still calling the shots as GM for the team, there is no way that we would bring on someone with that background onto the roster. AJ wants to have high character players all over the roster. He seems a fit for a team like the Lions, Raiders or Bengals, but there will be teams that will want his tremendous talent on the field.
Would you take a chance on the Honey Badger?
There is no way that I could risk a first round draft pick on a player with that background, but if he is still around in the third or even the second, let me get after him. Antoine Cason and Quentin Jammer are both free agents. We probably will bring Jammer back so that he can close out his career here and he could be a good veteran to show him the ropes in the NFL. Learn a season from Jammer and then play alongside Shareece Wright in the secondary.
