As Tyrann Mathieu (aka the Honey Badger) works out for teams leading up to this month's NFL Draft, he's keeping active on Twitter, writing self-motivational words and retweeting others' reports on which squads he's visiting.

Then, on Tuesday, he tweeted this:

For the record, Mathieu is coming off an impressive pro day at LSU, and, according to NFLScoutDraft.com, he's the 11th-rated cornerback in this year's draft and is projected to go in the second or third rounds.

Draft analyst Rob Rang compares Mathieu to free-agent cornerback Antoine Winfield, writing, “Like the 5-foot-9, 180-pound Winfield, Mathieu has Pro Bowl potential due to his tenacity, instincts and physicality.”
