[Update: Mathieu has responded on Twitter to the flier going viral:, "I didn't say i was going 1st round.. I Did not approve that part of the flyer..."]
If you’re in the general vicinity of Manhattan’s Meatpacking District on Thursday night and have the cash to burn, feel free to stop by SL nightclub in honor of “1st round draft pick” Tyrann Mathieu.
Never mind that, in most mock drafts, the former LSU cornerback isn’t expected to go off the board until the second round at the earliest. Or the lack of “too soon” worries in light of the accusations in Sports Illustrated’s October 22 cover story that he promoted events at a Baton Rouge nightclub in violation of NCAA rules. Or the fact that the “Honey Badger” still has NFL teams concerned about his substance abuse after getting kicked off LSU’s team last August for failing drug tests. And did we mention Mathieu doesn’t turn 21 until May 13th?
Even if Mathieu has fully kicked his drug habit, he clearly has a long way to go before he fully learns how to stay out of his own way.
