Mingo has "bust" written all over him. He is way too raw to take as high as we will be drafting. Mingo and Montgomery remind me of Hugh Green and Ricky Jackson fro Pitt many years ago. Mingo, like Green, gets the hype but Montgomery, like Jackson, will be the better player in the NFL. I would prefer Montgomery over Mingo. But then we have that wait for two years issue before they get significant playing time under LeBeau.
As far as an ILB, look no further than Kevin Minter to take over for Foote. It is a pipe dream to think that Sean Spence will be able to play at a high level in 2013.
Agreed about Mingo. For as great as he is athletically, he had a very down year this year. Only 4 sacks and 5.5 tackles for loss? And that is with having Sam Montgomery on the other side. I too would rather have Montgomery of the two. But having said that, both will require a position change if they go to the Steelers.
I love Kevin Minter. He is my second favorite ILB in this draft.
