We need Swarming players, and a MLB whos at least adequete at dropping into coverege, and Minter is better then both Johnson and Taylor at that, and hes better at getting to all parts of the field better as well, as opposed to taylor and Johnson,. who are both 2down straight line thumpers.. Minters a thumper, but hes also somewhat of a playmaker, and is a bit underrated at getting all over the field and not just straight ahead.. U don't have 20tackle and 19tackle games, unless ur all over the field, u just don't.. Nico JOhnson and Bruce Taylor coulden't dream of being that active...
I highly doubt Lane Johnson or Xavier Rhodes are available at #31.
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.
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.
- 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
ok,,not a chance in hell they trade back,,jerry values his picks too much.
