04/25/2013 - ROB RANG'S FINAL 2013 NFL DRAFT BIG BOARD: 22. *Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU: Mingo possesses the frame (6-4, 241) and athleticism to warrant top-10 consideration, but at this point, he remains a largely unpolished product who relies on his natural tools -- rather than technique -- to make plays. Given Mingo's upside, it is easy to imagine him terrorizing NFL quarterbacks off the edge as a multi-dimensional defender. Considering Mingo's relatively pedestrian numbers (38 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks) this season, as well as the struggles of other former highly regarded LSU defensive linemen in the NFL, the general manager who selects him that high will be rolling the dice. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
