6. Browns – OLB Barkevious Mingo

LSU Redshirt Junior

Measurables: 6’4″ 241 lbs 33 3/4″ arm length

NFL Combine: 4.53 40-yard DID NOT BENCH

NFL Comparison: Bruce Irvin

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.
