Former LSU defensive back Tyrann Mathieu completed the next step in his bid to enter the NFL draft, running a respectable 4.50 at the NFL Combine on Tuesday.

Mathieu didn’t play for LSU last year and wound up getting drug treatment after getting kicked off the team and later getting arrested for marijuana possession. Rather than transfer to a different school after undergoing treatment, Mathieu chose to try the NFL instead.

He opened up about that experience when he met with the media earlier this week, but much of whether he would get drafted depended on how he would run in the 40 yard dash.
