NFL Draft Countdown | No.21 Barkevious Mingo
Overall: #21 2014: #12 Ht: 6040 Wt: 240 40Yd: 4.60 Rd: 1st
Pros: NFL teams drool over raw athleticism and Mingo oozes potential with his quickness and agility. He arrived at Baton Rouge a tall, lanky 209-pound track star out of high school and has since converted into a beast on the outside with a lightning quick first step and cheetah-like speed. Mingo has been timed in the 4.5-range and is so fast, that he has caught good and plenty running backs from behind (see; LaMichael James, Oregon 2011).
Cons: Expand game—he will need to develop more of a repertoire rushing the quarterback instead of solely relying on his speed. Mingo has the frame to play at 250 pounds and be a devastating outside linebacker
