The Cowboys haven't expressed an interest in the "Honey Badger," who is projected to go in the middle rounds of the draft.

Mathieu, a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2011, missed the entire 2012 season after LSU expelled him for repeated positive tests for marijuana in August. After a few weeks in drug rehabilitation center in Houston, Mathieu was arrested in October for marijuana possession at LSU.

"I thought my bottom was when I got kicked out of school, but I think when I got arrested in October, that was a different bottom," Mathieu said at LSU's pro day.
