Tyrann Mathieu Finishes Combine With Mixed Results

The artist formerly known as the “Honey Badger” had a mixed bag of results

finishing up the combine. He stepped up during the interview process and said everything that people want to hear. He is a changed man and isn’t going to hide anything from the past.

Then he stepped to the bench press and could only managed an embarassing 4 reps. Mathieu recognized the weakness and said that he needs to get into the

weight room and it will be something he focuses on going forward.

To be fair, he focused in mostly on speed and should have probably skipped the bench press just like Manti Te’o did. But the kid wasn;t going to hide anything. He clocked in at 4.43 in the 40 and looked good in positional drills.

He could be a risk to draft, but he could be a steal in the later rounds. I wouldn’t mind taking a risk on him in the 4th. If we could get another 3rd, I would jump all over it.
