Kevin Minter

School: LSU
Position: ILB
Bio: Two-year starter awarded All-America and all-Conference honors as a junior after totaling 130 tackles/15 tackles for loss/4 sacks while also breaking up five passes. Sophomore totals of 2011 included 61/3.5/1.
Positive: Instinctive, run-defending linebacker who plays all out. Effectively diagnoses the action, remains disciplined with assignments, and plays much faster than his 40-time. Fires up the field filling gaps against the run or blitzing the quarterback. Fluid changing direction and displays skill in pursuit. Fast and fierce moving around the field to defend the run. Sells out to make plays and aggressively goes after ballcarriers. Breaks down well, holds his ground against blocks, or slides to the inside to get to the action. Gets depth on pass drops, stays with coverage assignments, and runs with tight ends down the field. Displays tremendous explosion in his overall game.
Negative: Lacks great sideline-to-sideline range. Occasionally overpursues the action and takes himself from plays.
Analysis: Minter is a complete defender who showed terrific development the past two seasons and offers starting ability at inside/middle linebacker. He's a tremendous run defender who can also pass cover in a zone system and offers immediate starting potential at the next level.
