Nice retort.

But you're wrong on Minter. He is 246 pounds, and he's a run stuffing machine. He's plenty big enough to man the post in the NFL, and that'll be seen in the draft. Minter doesn't look as big as he is because he's cat quick. He would have been the #1 MLB at any university in the nation this year.

Your both missing my point. They are differnt types of players, just because Minter can do it doesnt mean Jones wont be able to do it better, and plenty of times over the year Minter was making a lot of tackles after fighting blocks 3/4/5 yards down the field. If a middle linebacker can stuff the hole and blow the play up and make the other defenders tackle the running back it is much more desirable.

Were u one of those guys who said don't worry about losing Brady James (after his graduation), saying that the next guy in line would be even better? Come on dude. Lets not get carried away.

The difference is that Barrow has already proven in two years that hes more capable of doing that. And it helps that we have a better defense around him then James did.
