Found April 25, 2013 on Gridiron Grit:
The Cleveland Browns continued to revampt their front seven with the addition of Barkevious Mingo with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. Mingo collected a whopping 15 TKFL (tackles for loss) with 8.0 sacks in his sophomore season before his production dipped to 8.5 TKFL with 4.5 sacks in 2012.  Nevertheless, his stock started to soar over the last two weeks and his presence will give Ray Horton’s new defense much more depth and flexibility. Look for the LSU product to have a very solid immediate impact with the Browns and line up opposite Paul Kruger in an effective rotation with Quentin Groves and/or Jabaal Sheard, who led the team with 7.0 sacks last season.

With Their First Pick The Cleveland Browns Select:

Dee Miliner, Alabama. I would like to see the Browns make this pick because it would give them a great one two punch at the corners with Joe Haden. The biggest mistake they could make in my opinion would be to draft any of the quarterbacks that high. We already have a quarterback on the roster that we reached for in Brandon Weeden, there is no need to do it again. By Kevin Clarke...

Barkevious Mingo is a Cleveland Brown

It’s not necessarily the most exciting thing when your team uses the sixth overall pick to take a guy who, according to popular consensus, is the third best player available in a draft at a position.
