Honey Badger ain”t modest … not even a little bit … “cause the former LSU superstar football player tells our sources he believes he was the BEST player at the NFL combine, period.

Tyrann Mathieu arrived in L.A. yesterday … where he”s all set to participate in a segment for ESPN”s “Sports Science” … but while he waited for his bags at LAX, the 20-year-old talked all about his upcoming career as an NFL pro.

Among the topics — Mathieu told us which NFL team he wants to play for … why he excelled at the combine … and how he”s focused on returning to greatness after his recent drug issues.

Tyrann had a rough year in 2012 … getting kicked off the LSU football team for violating team rules. A few months later, he was arrested for drug possession.

But Honey Badger put together an impressive NFL combine last month — running a 4.50 in the 40-yard dash … and excelling in position drills.

He”s projected to be drafted somewhere close to the 4th round — but it”s possible someone takes a chance on him early when the NFL Draft goes down in April.
