TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Cardinals have used their third-round draft pick on LSU safety Tyrann Mathieu, filling a need in the secondary with a player with a checkered past.
Arizona took one LSU player, linebacker Kevin Minter, in the second round and took a chance in the third by selecting the player known as the Honey Badger.
Once considered a Heisman Trophy front-runner, Mathieu didn't play last season after Tigers coach Les Miles kicked him off the team for failing multiple drug tests.
A close friend of Cardinals Pro Bowl cornerback Patrick Peterson, Mathieu spent the past few months trying to rehabilitate his image after being arrested in October with three former teammates for marijuana possession at his Baton Rouge apartment.
