"Without being asked about Kevin Minter specifically, Calais Campbell and Jerraud Powers raved about how the ILB played in camp." That's what Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reported Friday. It's easy to look past Minter after an empty rookie year and a lackluster 1st turn as a starter last year. But the Cards made him a 2nd-round pick 2 years ago after Minter closed out his 3 seasons at LSU with 130 tackles, 15 tackles for loss and 4 sacks in his final year. Keep him in mind as a late sleeper in your IDP draft.

Recent Shark Bites

Cardinals LB Kevin Minter has missed the past 5 days with a pectoral injury and could be in for more sideline time.  Mike Jurecki of 910 AM in Phoenix reports that the team is considering keeping him out of the remaining 2 preseason games to allow the injury to heal.  If that doesn't work, Minter reportedly might need surgery.  The down time won't make it easy for him to stake a claim to sub-package work.  It's a tough development for a guy who entered the offseason as an intriguing IDP sleeper.  Minter still carries upside, but he looks a lot riskier now than he did a month ago and has slid down our 2014 IDP rankings.  If Minter misses regular-season time, newly signed LB Desmond Bishop could step into the lineup.
