Daniel Jeremiah, a former NFL scout with the Ravens and Browns, was a must-follow on Twitter in the months prior to the 2010 NFL Draft as he tweeted his draft perspective and covertly polled NFL personnel. After being hired by the Eagles following that draft though, Jeremiah deleted his Twitter account and his website. However, he recently left the Eagles "to pursue a media opportunity" and is back on Twitter providing interesting information.
Among that information was a tidbit about a certain newly re-signed member of the Jacksonville Jaguars defense:
I asked an NFL coach which pass rusher was the most underrated in the league… Answer surprised me, Jeremy Mincey JAX— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) May 4, 2012
Mincey, 28, had a breakout year in 2011, finishing with eight sacks and four forced fumbles, which he parlayed into a four-year, $27.2 million contract following the season. A source told me that if the Jaguars hadn't payed him, there certainly would've been a market for the pass rusher elsewhere.
