    Demario Minter

    Demario Minter
    CB | (5'11", 190, 4.52) | GEORGIA

    Scouts Grade: 70

    Strengths: Possesses adequate-to-good height and is well built. He has very good speed. Shows solid balance and body control. Is a smooth athlete. Shows quickness in his pedal and good burst out of it. He has very good closing quickness. Will bat down a lot of passes at the last second. He has the quick-twitch athleticism to mirror quicker WR's double moves. He has very good recognition skills and takes few false steps. Rarely gets caught guessing and does a very good job of protecting himself from getting beat deep. He fills hard versus the run and knows how to use his hands to keep off of blocks. Is a solid open-field tackler with adequate-to-good strength.

    Weaknesses: He is sound but not flashy. Is not much of a playmaker when the ball is in the air. Not overly aggressive. Protects himself from giving up the big play but doesn't make enough big plays of his own. His ball skills are poor and he doesn't challenge receivers enough. He did not have an interception as a fulltime starter in 2004 and his only two career interceptions came as a senior. He also has a character alert; suspended for two games in 2003 after arrested for marijuana possession.

    Overall: Minter served as a reserve cornerback during his true freshman season in 2002 and moved to a sub-package role with one start in all 12 games played as a sophomore in 2003. Minter took over as a fulltime starter as a junior in 2004, finishing with 51 total tackles, including 3.5 for loss and 10 passes broken up. Minter started all 13 games as a senior in 2005 and finished with 48 tackles, 3.5 TFL, nine PBU and two interceptions. Minter does not have great playmaking skills and he's not an overly flashy player. He also has some character concerns that will scare some teams off. However, he has kept his nose clean over the course of the last two years (2004-'05) and he made more big plays as a senior. Minter has the size, speed, athleticism, experience and tackling skills to contribute immediately as a sub-package defensive back and on special teams in the NFL. We also believe that he has a solid NFL future as a No. 2 or No. 3 cornerback in the NFL. Minter could be off the 2006 draft board before the end of the first day.




    What do you guys think? He sounds like he could serve in the dime back role this year and possibly challenge for the nickleback spot next season. Wouldn't hurt to get some CB depth. Yeah, he's not a playmaker, but when you go down the depth chart, you just want guys to can cover and Minter can do that.

    Sounds like he isn't worth drafting.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Why do you say that? Just because he isn't projected to be a super star or an every day starter doesn't mean he can't be successful. If we had him playing the dime role, his job would be to take away that passing option, which he is very capable of doing. We don't need a playmaker at every depth position, just someone who can contain and that's exactly what Minter does.
