Early Look At 2013 NFL Draft Prospect: Barkevious Mingo
Barkevious Mingo, a LSU defensive end, has an interesting name but what intrigued me more about him was the fact that NFL Draft expert Jeremy Hyde, of Draft-Hub.com, recommended that I watch the player’s games from 2011. Jeremy claimed that Mingo was the best pass rushing prospect he had seen amongst those that would enter the 2013 NFL Draft.
- Arkansas: Mingo applied pressure the whole game and displayed a terrific first step. He’s got a non-stop motor, quickness, and explosiveness from the line of scrimmage. The defensive end got quality NFL caliber sacks during this game and is definitely a pass rusher. Unfortunately he was an average run defender, but that’s not that big of a deal since the league prioritizes pass rushing.
- Auburn: Once again he looked quick and explosive at the line of scrimmage. The Auburn tackles gave him a hard time and he didn’t seem to have the necessary upper body strength to properly go up against them. He has a good spin pass rush move and solid instincts but the lack of strength was disappointing.
- Georgia: This was by far Mingo’s worst game out of the ones I watched. He looked weak and didn’t stand out at all while the Georgia offensive line completely neutralized him. He kept trying to get past their tackles but nothing he did worked.
- Mississippi State: In this game Mingo was solid. He demonstrated good instincts and even got a strip sack on the Mississippi State quarterback.

Three questions the New Orleans Saints need to answer heading into preseason
If anybody knows what happened to the Saints last year, can you please give me a call? Because I’m still grasping for answers. I mean, there’s no reason why the Saints should have been as bad as they were last year, even if everything went wrong -- which it pretty much did. Before the season started, the general consensus was that New Orleans could very well be competing for a Super Bowl birth. Instead, their defense imploded before our eyes, and they finished 7-9. And it’s not like this offseason has been full of answers, either. Here are the three biggest questions the Saints have heading into the preseason: Read More
