Arizona addressed one big need by taking North Carolina offensive guard Jonathan Cooper in the first round, but still had plenty of holes to fill.
After swapping second-round picks with San Diego, they opted to shore up a linebacking corps that will be missing Daryl Washington the first four games of the 2013 season after he violated the league's substance-abuse policy.
As a redshirt junior last season, Minter was 14th nationally with 130 tackles, including 15 for losses, while becoming a finalist for the Butkus Award and a second-team Associated Press All-American.
