    I'll take Minter in the 2nd/Late 1st over Te'o at this point. Minter proved he can play against this level of competition all season long.
    Kevin Minter is playing with 3 maybe 5 1st round picks on the defense he plays with. Does that not make a difference?

    Not saying it doesn't. But no one is advocating taking Minter in the top 10 picks of the draft.

    Here the thing: They are not that far apart at all as players.

    The one big difference? Minter played in the SEC. The level of competition was much better, but no one is touting him as a top ten pick.

    They are not far apart as players and I would bet their measurables are pretty similar.

    With the way he's getting dominated by Alabama, we might be able to get him in the 2nd.
    With the way he played, I don't know that we want him in the 2nd round. Seriously, he missed tackles all night long.

    Te'o is overrated because he played for an undefeated ND team. No way would I spend ANY first round pick on him. He got punked all night last night.

    Yes I agree with this. I've been touting Minter since September. But to think that Kevin Minter isnt helped by having Mingo, Montgomery, Jenkins, Reid, Barrow, Bennie Logan, etc. is flat out not seeing the big picture.

    Please, everyone, beware passing judgment on a player due to the results of one game against "NFL level" competition...

    That kind of thinking landed us Troy Edwards in the first round...

    I hope no one is passing judgement on Lacy, Teo or any player based on one game... but you have to be concerned when a highly touted player gets man handled like that and misses tackle after tackle.

    I've seen enough of Teo to know he isn't top 10 or top 15 and anyone who gets him will have their hands full getting him ready for the next level.

    Where did I say it didn't help Minter? Did you miss this part of my post?

    Well then if it is helping him (to have maybe 3 fist round picks playing in front of him), then it would also help Te'o. And with this maybe that would show more of a separation between the two. ??????
