Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned First Team All-MEC honors in each of his final two seasons at Notre Dame College. Led the team with 14.5 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks and three forced fumbles and made 58 tackles in 2017. Led Notre Dame College with 13.5 tackles for loss and recorded 47 tackles and 5.5 sacks as a junior. Named Second Team All-MEC and posted 60 tackles (10.5 for loss), seven sacks and two forced fumbles in 2015. Made 26 tackles (five for loss) with five sacks as a true freshman.
Pos: 
Athletic small-school defensive end who shows pass-rushing ability. Quick off the snap, rarely off his feet and plays with good lean. Moves well about the field, can bend off the edge and nicely redirects to ball carriers. Fast up the field, easily changes direction and immediately alters his angle of attack. Exploits stiff and unathletic opponents and quickly locates the ball carrier.
Neg: 
Easily taken from the action by a single blocker or handled at the point. More of a first-step lineman.
Analysis: 
Mathieu possesses size, athleticism and growth potential and has enough pass-rushing ability to get consideration for a practice squad this fall.
