    Suspended for the Auburn game.

    Not a very smart move on his part.

    Thanks for update Ochmed- too immature to realize this could cost him thousands of dollars, a real shame.

    That's really a shame. Mathieu is a fantastic player. Some people have compared him to Woodson or even Reed. Incredible potential.

    Synthetic weed. And he's not even eligible for the draft for a year and a half, so he's got plenty of time to recover from this.

    Calvin Johnson (and any number of other players) admitted to using marijuana during combine interviews. He seems to be doing okay.

    That said, it is a red flag.

    Its a bag of random herbs that claim to give marijuana like effects when smoked. The truth is they spray the herbs with stuff like JWH-018 or whatever the hell its called. Basically just synthesized cannabanoids. I don't really care that players smoke but the synthetic crap is a joke.

    Mathieu made a mistake.

    Then again... If Aaron Hernandez did not make a mistake, he would probably
    be on another team.

    I would love to see the Pats get Mathieu in the 2013 draft.

    It definitely raises the red flag and puts a ding on him considering the fantastic write up ESPN just did on him..

    That being said, the kid is 5'9.5" by his own admission. Big difference between him and Woodson. He's also an inch or two shorter than Ed Reed. But he definitely falls into the range that the Pats love..

    A great 3 cone time added to the mix would have definitely caught BB's eye in the past. But lately he seems to be migrating to bigger DBs that can tackle better.
