If Jones and Mingo are still there at our pick which one would you choose? In my opinion I would get jones, tell me what you think!

I hope we get that choice, but I think both will be gone, but the spine thing and combine might help jones fall to us

Jones. But the only way I see us getting him is if we trade up. But we shouldn't there will be other good pass rushers where we pick.

Jones's injury issue scares me a little bit so I'm gonna go with Mingo

Mingo has the higher ceiling. Jones is game ready right now.

Tough choice.

Yeah. I keep thinking that if he puts it all together, he could be elite by NFL standards. He seems to have it all:
Straight line speed
Burst
Intelligence
Discipline
Size
Length
Physicality
Strength

I'd love to have either guy, but my pick would be Mingo.

The anti-LSU crowd isn't gonna agree, but I think Mingo may end up being the star player of this draft.

The guy is super skinny for his body frame. He'll be able to put on a ton of weight after he goes pro and still be athletic.
Plus, after he runs an absurd 40 time (remember he ran Lamichael James down), he's gonna be a hot name on everybody's board. I could totally see him as a top 5 pick.

If, somehow, he's still there at (?15), the Saints HAVE to draft him.

I like the potential with Mingo because he doesn't have the spine/work ethic question marks that Jones has.

I think that with better coaching, Mingo could be at D. Ware's level. He just wasn't utilized or developed properly at LSU to produce the way Jones did.

Excellent post.

I am / was in the anti-Mingo crowd. At least in the first round.
You've made some great points and have planted a seed.
I may change my position.
