    Right on Minter. See my signature.

    I have been saying this all year. Yes I want a cookie. Minter next to Timmons would be a great combination. I've questioned Reid's coverage skills and have said for a while he is better suited playing at SS than FS. And as for Montgomery, I would prefer him way over Barkevious Mingo. He is more polished as a pass rusher.

    I agree about the NT thing but I do believe that Te"o and Minter (and maybe even Olgetree who plays in a 3-4), could start year one. They are both leaders and signal callers for their perspective teams. Yes there would be some adjustments and some growing pains but both would make enough plays to compensate for that. It's a matter of trust. And this team coming off an 8-8 needs to start trusting in young, talented defensive players. The Steelers have enough veterans around them to make it happen. And for goodness-sakes, they have one of the greatest D-coordinators the game has ever seen.

    Did Mingo do anything. A lot of forecasts of the draft have us going with him in the first round, but will he drop to 17? I don't think so, but we have to see until after the combine to know.

    It is the "greatest D-coordinator the game has ever seen" who is the source of the problem in "trusting in young, talented defensive players. As long as the former is in place the latter will not occur.

    The guy is a beast. Almost worth having the leagues worst record next year to draft him.

    I like Clowney better than just about everyone in this year's draft.

    He made a couple of big plays early then faded as he has done most of this year. He did get hurt and didn't play much of the second half. Too me his teammate Sam Montgomery is the better of the two picks.

    He is a monster of a player and more than likely the number 1 overall pick next year. He has to stay at DE in a 4-3 in my opinion. Would best utilize his pass rushing skills. He is so quick coming out of his stance.
