Tyrann Mathieu is back in the headlines but this time it is for a positive reason.

Tyrann who has been nicknamed the 'Honey Badger' passed his drug test at the NFL scouting combine in February and will enter the NFL Draft which begins Thursday night April 25th.

NFL.com's Albert Breer reported Monday that Mathieu passed his drug test at February's NFL Scouting Combine, according to sources from two teams.

It's another encouraging sign for Mathieu, dismissed by LSU last August due to substance-abuse issues. A failed test at the combine would have been devastating for the cornerback's draft stock.
