After an uneven rookie season, the jury is still out on Barkevious Mingo

The career of Barkevious Mingo has had its handful of ups and down, despite the fact the sixth pick in last year’s draft has played just 15 games. Met with a largely positive reaction, the drafting of Mingo sent a message to the league that the Browns wanted to pressure opposing quarterbacks. Mingo, who became a high profile name during his days at LSU, terrorized would-be passers...

No. 6: Barkevious Mingo, Cleveland Browns No. 18: Eric Reid, San Francisco 49ers No. 45: Kevin Minter, Arizona Cardinals No. 67: Bennie Logan, Philadelphia Eagles...

The Tigers had eight defensive players selected during the three-day, seven-round NFL draft.

NFL Draft: Cleveland Browns Select Barkevious Mingo

With the 6th pick in the NFL draft, the Cleveland Browns selected Barkevious Mingo. Mingo, a Junior Defensive End from LSU, is an impressive pass rusher who has been part of one of college football’s best defenses the last 3 seasons. With the Browns switching to a 3-4 defense they will hope Mingo can provide them the edge rush and consistent pressure the defense needs. Here’s...

And with 6th overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft the Cleveland Browns select…

Barkevious Mingo DE from the Louisiana State University.  This is a great pick for the Browns who struggled on defense for the last half decade.  Mingo can get up field and after the QB as well as run stop.  He should be a main stay for the Browns defense that they can build around for years to come.  Geax Tigers and Geax Browns.

First Round NFL Draft Grades: Cleveland Browns

PICK: Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSUANALYSIS: I hate this pick. Mingo just ins't that good. Cleveland already got their pass rusher in free agency, and didn't need to take a chance on a bum like Mingo with the sixth overall selection. I think he will be a bust very early on, similar to Maybin in 2009. Cleveland will regret not taking Smith or Milliner here I believe. GRADE...
