SIAP: Kiper Mock 1.0: Minter to Ravens at No. 29


Still think he should go ahead of T'eo, but we know that won't happen

quote:

29. Kevin Minter *Baltimore Ravens (10-6)
Analysis: LSU saw a flood of defenders enter the draft, but Minter is the one who should be taken first. With Ray Lewis on his way to the broadcast booth when the season ends, the Ravens need a strong presence in the middle of that linebacking corps. He's not Lewis, but Minter similarly does a great job of anticipating where the play is going and making offensive linemen whiff as he beats them to the ball. A natural fit in the Baltimore scheme, he's a player ready to start.



Also has Mingo to the Jets at No. 9

quote:

Analysis: Skill position questions are significant for the Jets, who need help at wide receiver, tight end and probably at running back. But the value might not be there at this spot, and for several years the Jets also have lacked a pass-rusher who scares opposing offenses. Mingo could be that player on the edge in Rex Ryan's scheme, strengthening a defensive line that is going to be very good on the interior as Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples develop into a couple of the best 3-4 defensive ends in the league. Mingo must add polish and play with better leverage, but his ceiling is extremely high and Ryan could do a lot with him.


and Sonic Sam to the Giants at No. 19

quote:

Analysis: It was just a year ago at this time when we considered the pass rush a major strength of the Giants, with an emerging Pierre-Paul and veterans Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora. But while JPP is now among the best 4-3 defensive ends in the league, the latter two will both be north of 30 by the time the draft arrives -- Umenyiora may not be around next season, and it could be the final year for Tuck in New York. If the Giants want to keep the defensive line a strength, a proven, high-motor defender with pass-rushing skills such as Montgomery would make a lot of sense.

Bamer only has three so maybe that is a sign for good things to come

Surprised to see Mingo and Minter so high. I was actually thinking Minter would be better off staying another year and vaulting himself into the middle first round.

Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State

quote:

Analysis: The Saints had a disappointing season, but the problem was mainly on defense. No team was easier to run against consistently than New Orleans, and they need a clogger up the middle, a player who can free up linebackers to make plays. Hankins ran a little hot and cold, and the tape doesn't show a player who will penetrate and use quickness to beat interior blockers, but he can eat up double-teams, move down the line well and make the players around him better. The Saints need help in several spots on defense, but they really need a player who can help deliver more third-and-long situations, and Hankins could be that guy.

Thank you Chavis!!! It's great to have a defense with good skill at LB and good coaching to enhance that skill. I love watching LSU's front 7. Everybody gives the Dline and DBs so much credit for the last few years (and much is deserving), but fans should realize that the LBs have played above expectations since Chavis has arrived in BR, and the cupboard is full for the future. If LSU can produce a few 1st rounders at LB, the LB recruiting should only get better!

All three of those predictions in the OP would be great fits for both parties.

Sam to the Giants would be ideal fit. They've groomed some great ones there and Tuck and Osi are getting to be dinosaurs.
