Mathieu: A Lions MUST HAVE PLAYER.

Tyrann Mathieu is the best PR/KR in the 2013 NFL Draft (better than Austin) and happens to be a glaring hole the Lions MUST address this offseason.. He should be projected in the late first - early second round just based on that.. And his ball skills lead me to think that he could even play running back for the Lions if they wanted to line Reggie up in the slot from time to time and still wanted that elusive speed option...

He may have been a bit out of shape at the combine, but once he starts getting into the grind of the NFL he'll make up for it.. I am weary of his off the field issues too ...But those issues seem minuscule when compared to his tenacity and play making ability. The Lions cannot afford to pass on another Janoris Jenkins-like CB.. especially when he can return punts and kickoffs like he did at LSU.. He's probably a bit of a risk on day 2 (for the Lions).. but If we don't jump on him early day 3, we will have missed the boat for sure.,

i'm predicting:

5th pick: Chance Warmack (Yes, even though he's a Guard)

36th pick: Margus Hunt .DE

68th pick: Tyrann Mathieu .CB

Trades will go on, so who knows what'll really happen ..but those 3 players (I believe) the Lions MUST HAVE to make it to the playoffs.
