There were concerns that Mingo wasn’t big enough to play end in the NFL, but the Browns adding Mingo means he’s likely playing outside ‘backer instead. He’s explosive enough to get to the passer and is a good tackler who fights blockers and plays extremely physical.
Mingo lacks fluidity in his movements, which will be a problem with more elusive quarterbacks and quick running backs as a run defender. He is a bit undersized as yet, but he has room to put muscle on his frame as of yet.
