Volin adds that Mathieu has already met with a total of 15 teams, so there’s clearly interest in him at this point.
Mathieu is Mobile, Alabama for Senior Bowl week. While he’s not competing in any practices, he has made himself available for interviews throughout the week. It is expected that he will meet with all 32 teams at some point.
Due to his off-the-field issues while he was at LSU, some believe Mathieu could be taken as early as the third round in this year’s draft.
The fact that there’s already been a good amount of interest may suggest that NFL teams believe he could be a good value in the middle round of this year’s draft, assuming he even makes it that far.
