Arizona Cardinals defensive back Tyrann Mathieu was drafted 69 overall in this years’ draft. After all the negative things NFL Network’s draft analyst Mike Mayock said about the former LSU cornerback, Mathieu says he’ll “blow [Mayock] a kiss” the first time he makes a game-changing play.
I'll never forget what mike mayock said about me… I'll blow him a kiss on my first game changing play

Among the negative things Mayock said about Mathieu was that he was a better football player than an athlete and he also bet a NFL coach that Mathieu wouldn’t be drafted in the top 50.
It’s good for players to have chips on their shoulders. They can use that as motivation in case they think millions of dollars isn’t motivation enough.
