DE Barkevious Mingo

6 feet 4, 241 pounds

LSU

Tall, long and explosive player who projects best as a stand-up, weakside edge rusher. … Inconsistent player with big upside. ... Has not grasped the basics of the position, often gets by on raw talent. … Incredible first step off the snap. Not a contact-shy player despite his slight build, often lines up on the strong side and/or inside of tight ends in a tight alignment. … Mingo's production dropped as a junior, and he did not show much overall growth in his game over the course of his career. However, he flashed the talent and projectable skills to be a dominant NFL pass rusher, and a position switch likely will serve him well because he too often was asked to play in a tight alignment on the strong side in college. … Works through blocks to get down the line to chase plays. Overall agility and length make him effective in coverage, can stay with running backs out of the backfield and wrap up receivers in space. Excellent straight-line speed shows when chasing plays from behind. Uses his length and jumping ability to knock down passes if he can’t reach the quarterback.
