Logan is the guy who makes it possible for Minter to make all those tackles. He'll probably be gone by the time we pick but I would be interested if he's still around at 32.

LSU haven't exactly been renowned for producing/recruiting any great QBs of late either.
    Cam did a good job in '08 and '09 with the inexperienced Flacco at the helm. He also took a lot of heat for it from some fans who thought he was "too conservative," but he used the weapons he had quite well. The '10 season should have put that to rest, as the apparent deficiencies in personnel when it came to running an aggressive, downfield passing attack became obvious. It didn't, however.

    But when he got better tools to run the Coryell, he didn't do a good job adapting to those tools. The addition of Smith and Jones gave Cameron the deep threats he needed, but he didn't look to move the chains enough. He didn't look to consistently gain positive yards on first and second down. He was too quick to rely on the pass when things weren't going quite as planned.

    Is that Mike Minter's son?

    FWIW, on Kevin Minter, since he's been discussed in this thread, I just saw these Tweets:

    Daniel Jeremiah ‏@MoveTheSticks
    RT @matt_miz: very good fit for Ravens, no? > When I scouted there, we focused on speed, toughness and instincts. Minter checks all 3 boxes

    I've see all I need to see from Kevin Minter…Instincts, burst, explosive striker, sorts through the trash, great effort. I'm in. #Draft

    Didn't realize they had been friends for years and coached together at Michigan. There's usually a past history on these type of hires

    Good for Cam. He deserves it You can't keep a good man down. It was still his system that won the SB with a few wrinkles added on by Jim and he'll get a ring to boot.

    I think Cam could be a good college coordinator and it suits his skills and personality. Cam does a good job teaching the basics, at the NFL level I think the biggest problem he has is surrendering control once a QB has outgrown needing him to hold their hand. This is alleviated at the college level as guys move on.

    Either way I wish him luck. I wanted Cam gone after for a while but I also think he was the right guy at the right time for Flacco when he first was drafted. He handled a difficult situation with complete class and professionalism. I respect that
