this is what Mel Kiper said the other day: “The highest-rated (LSU player for the Draft) is still Mingo,” Kiper said during a conference call. “He has not had the sacks or the tackles for loss that he had last year. But he can still close and has a tremendous burst.” “He has tremendous potential as a pass rusher,” Kiper said. “He’ll get coached up in the NFL. He has real good versatility, being able to play up and down. He wasn’t dominant, but he has the talent to be that in the NFL.” He said Mingo and Texas A&M junior Damontre Moore would be “in a battle” to see which is the top end if they choose to enter the draft. “Sam Montgomery has had better numbers (than Mingo), but he doesn’t have the burst or athleticism of Mingo,” Kiper said. “Montgomery is a great college player. He might not be as good an NFL player because he doesn’t have that exceptional skill set.” Kiper said he thought Logan “would be wise to return” to LSU. He said he had Minter rated as the No. 2 junior middle linebacker. Simon has unusually good size (6-foot-3) for a cornerback, but Kiper said “another year would help him” as it would Reid.
