Coach: Barkevious Mingo shined in Saturday practice
by Marty Gitlin |

Mike Pettine spoke glowingly Saturday about Browns 2013 top pick Barkevious Mingo, who proved disappointing as a pass rusher as a rookie as his production diminished in time.

Pettine said "hopefully the switch has been flipped" in regard to Mingo. The coach added that Mingo has gained much-needed weight and is now in the upper 230s. Mingo will also be put to the test in pass coverage, at which he was not adept a year ago.

New Browns coach Mike Pettine wants outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo (6-4, 241) to gain weight and says he believes he can get last year's No. 6 overall pick to play like it, reports the Akron Beacon Journal. Mingo had 42 tackles and five sacks as a rookie.

Ray Horton: Barkevious Mingo must get stronger, more learned
by Marty Gitlin |

Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton suggested Thursday that disappointing rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo put in plenty of time in the offseason in the weight room and studying the playbook, the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram has reported.

The 240-pound Mingo has shown flashes of brilliance, but has too often disappeared. He has just two sacks since recording three in his first three games. Critics believe he needs to develop a wider variety of pass-rushing moves and gain strength.

Browns hope for more from stagnating Barkevious Mingo
by Marty Gitlin |

It remains to be seen if rookie outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo will become just another in a long line of disappointing first-round picks for the Browns. Early returns are not promising. Mingo has just one sack in the last six games after recording three in his first three games.

Defensive coordinator Ray Horton said Thursday he would like to see Mingo unleash his potential as a pass-rusher, but isn't complaining about his work ethic. "He's doing everything we want," Horton told The Associated Press. "I'm challenging him to do more."

Mingo has started three of nine games in which he has played and has 18 tackles.
