With the NFL draft just a few weeks away, Former LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu is making the rounds of pro football teams.   He’s reportedly in Arizona today and will be in Cincinnati Monday, making his case to team officials in a suit and tie.

USA Today columnist Jarrett Bell notes that Mathieu has repeatedly stated he’s been clean since an arrest in October for marijuana possession and then adds these details…

 

During one visit, Mathieu was asked how many drug tests he failed before he was suspended in college.

According to an assistant coach for the team, Mathieu responded: “I quit counting at 10. I really don’t know.”

The coach, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to comment about the evaluation, doesn’t dump all of the blame on Mathieu. He points a finger at LSU.

“If he flunked 10 tests before they suspended him, it shows that he got no kind of help,” the coach said.

 

 

Mathieu was dismissed from the LSU team in August.  He received a one-game suspension back in 2011 after a drug test revealed synthetic marijuana in his system. He’s considered a likely third-round pick in the draft but could go in the second-round.

Update: LSU spokesman says the school denies the charge and will issue a statement later today.
