Didn't need to pretty it up more than it already is. A early first round draft pick that has lived up to his draft status, at a position of need around the league in today's NFL... who's young and dirt cheap for the next 4 years? Knowing what teams "know" about Minkah right now... if he was coming out in next year's draft, he'd easily be a top 5 pick and in the discussion for #1 if not for a few QB needy teams.There’s definitely a market - which means demand and competition, which usually means a higher price.
I think dutar's point (and I agree with him) is there's an element of "the devil you know" at play here that no draft selection could ever possess. He's got some very good tape vs. NFL talent.Calling him a 'Top 5' pick is pushing it a bit, I think. He has definite value, but he's not in that stratosphere.
