Scouting Report/Player Notes

Mingo is lightning quick off the ball, and it’s no surprise considering speed has always been the name of his game. He came into LSU measuring out at 6’5″ 209 pounds, which is unusually small for a DE, but over the last three years, he’s put on nearly 30 pounds and has the frame to add even more. This kid has the potential to be a freak pass rusher, and not unlike his teammate Sam Montgomery, I think he’s going to be an absolute stud at the next level. He has elite quickness and speed, and is relentless in pursuit. Really long athlete with great hands already, and a guy that potentially could play defensive end or linebacker at the next level. Has the frame to grow to 250-260 without losing much quickness at all. I have seen him track down LaMichael James from behind, which has to account for something. Already has a pretty solid arsenal of pass rush moves to get to the quarterback. 13.5 tackles for loss in 2011 prior to the national title game with seven sacks.

Gets in the backfield quicker than most guys I have seen, and reminds me a lot of Von Miller in that regard. Has obvious struggles with double teams, as he is not big enough yet to take them on on a consistent basis. This is a guy that I believe could be an elite pass rushing prospect at the NFL level as a DE or OLB. He has elite quickness and instincts, and is always in the backfield making plays. At this point, I consider him a top 10 talent without question in the 2013 class.
