    I have to respectfully disagree with you here, besides the fact that the coaches love him and the players look up to him the kid is a natural leader. Instinctive, physical, already at a prototypically good size for a 4-3 MLB thumper. Sure, he can get better in coverage but overall he make that up in athleticisim. Nico Johnos is also a great pick where he would fall to 3rd-4th but analyst have Minter jumping up to top 20 first round. There is a big drop in talent from Minter to Johnson.

    Edit:
    Minter is a physical downhill linebacker, who plays decisive and tough with an attacking play style. He shows little wasted movements and plays with an infectious intensity that his teammates feed off of, earning praise for his attitude on and off the field by the coaching staff. LSU defensive coordinator John Chavis has called Minter the team's top competitor, and, at the end-of-season banquet, Minter was voted by his teammates as the team's most valuable player. While Te'o appears to be the consensus top prospect at his position, it wouldn't be surprising if some teams rank Minter as the better inside linebacker. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

    - "I would be ecstatic to have him in blue and move chase over to SLB while Boley/Williams man the WILL."
    Those are reasons I like Nico. He's listed at 6'3 245 (probably closer to 6'2). Minter is listed at 6'2 245. So their size is the same. AND, Nico Johnson is also one of the team leaders and looked up to among the team. If Minter played at Alabama, he would have been in the exact same position as Nico. He'd be pulled on passing downs, getting less playing time and dropping down the draft. Both are great against the run and have question marks in how they are in coverage. I guess I just don't see how someone can say Minter fits our system and not Nico, if you are concerned about getting a LB that can drop into coverage. Anyone who plays for Nick Saban and lasts until their senior year is a competitor.

    EDIT: I definitely think Minter is more of a thumper and definitely swarms into plays and is a playmaker. That's why I like him and why he's a higher rated prospect.... I do not think his is more mobile than Nico though. Nico seems thinner in the hips and legs and looks like he moves better, which is why I think he'd better in coverage... Minter seems like he can see where a play is going and gets there quickly and with power but seems more like a straightline LB to me. It will be interesting to see what their times are the combine/pro day. There's a reason that Minter is the better prospect, he's a manimal. But don't really think he's more mobile... definitely more powerful.

      Does anyone know where I can find more tape of Bruce Taylor? I only watched him in his bowl game and he looked great. A perfect mid to late round selection for us, allowing our first and second picks to be used on cb/ol/de.

        To the OP - Kiko Alonso is a steal in the 3rd? I beg to differ. He's a 5th-7th and could go undrafted. He's slow, takes bad angles...etc.
        High 4.5s I agree. He's expected to run the low 4.5s (which wouldn't change his stock from what it is now more than likely) and has been timed as sub 4.5 which will only raise his stock if he pulls that at the Combine.
        I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

          No offense but i don't think you have watched any of his tape if your calling him slow and takes bad angles, and I don't know where you're getting your draft info from but this kid has been a sleeper for some time now and his stock is going to rise with the senior bowl and combine. he is Athletic and fast, and has play making ability. I think he has been hampered with some knee (not sure) issues but he stated hes close to 100%.

          - Alonso entered Saturday's showdown having already posted 42 tackles, including eight tackles for loss and a sack on the season. He's also proved to be a turnover magnet, registering two interceptions and has both forced and recovered a fumble. Despite playing the same position, Alonso isn't a mauler in the middle like Notre Dame's Manti Te'o, the unquestioned top inside linebacker in the country. Whereas the Irish star has the perfect build for stuffing the run at 6-2, 255 pounds, Alonso has a slimmer, more athletic build at 6-3, 242 pounds that some scouts believe could make him valuable in the NFL because he'll likely be able to play all three positions in a normal 4-3 alignment. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

              Lane maybe not. Rhodes can be there. Most mocks I see put xavier in the second round or late first. this is pre combine projections we don't know squat for sure until after combines, ansah can go top 5 or top 5 second round for all we know, pure speculation right now.

                How much did he value his picks when he shipped off a 5th rounder for Rivers? Trading back to get more picks is the smartest thing to do. Like my boy Sportzfan said all the underclass men entering this draft plus the fact that two extra guys are on the board due to (NO and CLE) not having their 2nd round picks. we can get some 2014 first rounders in the second round.

Desmond Trufant CB Washington(i think poyer and rhodes gone by mid 2nd)2). Datone Jones DE UCLA(really climbing up my personal rankings, even though i've always liked em, i'm liking em more)3). Baccari Rambo S Georgia(might not be available, but at least a shot)4). Brian Winters G/T Kent St.5). Levine Toilolo TE Stanford6). TJ Johnson C/G South Carolina7). Miguel Maysonet RB Slippery Rock
                      Sportzfan,I respect your knowledge of prospects, but I just don't get your love of Rambo. Kid looks like he doesn't want to hit anyone and avoids contact. Who was the last great safety to do that? Much rather Phil Thomas out of Fresno St...ballhawk who looks for contact.

                        your comparing a 1st rounder, 19th overall to a fifth round pick,, I stopped reading right there,,,there will be too many cant pass prospects at 19 to trade,,won't happen. value as in 1st rounders.

                          then stop posting as well if your not going to read the full thing.
                          You said reese values his picks, him shipping off a 5th for a player with an injury history is not the book term description of valuing. whether it be first or 7th when you say someone values their picks that to me means they are not parting ways with any of them no matter where they are slated. You also just don't see the bigger picture, you think " hey were at 19 we can get that sure fire stud there, that guys that's going to come in and miraculously change the unit he plays for." I see great value in the later rounds and if it means trading back not out of the first by no means just back a bit to acquire a couple more picks in a round where there is talent, i don't see why this is not widely accepted or is it just you?

                            The scenario of trading back is always enticing even more when you get a pick back . I think its gona be difficult to see Lane or Rhodes at the end of the first, some experts are mocking them higher because of their skills and team needs but if by any chance this could get thru I'm in. I have Wagner and Cyprien in my mock draft too and your other picks fill nice balance between need vs BPA.
