Barkevious Mingo: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The sixth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Mingo showed flashes as a rookie but didn't quite live up to expectations. He's a bit undersized, even for a 3-4 outside linebacker, so adding some weight makes plenty of sense. Count Mingo among the top candidates to make a major second-year leap in 2013. He has the physical tools to become an excellent pass rusher.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Mingo enters the NFL as a high first-round draft pick, but his immediate role with the Browns will be as a backup and passing-situation specialist. With the team moving from a 4-3 to a 3-4 alignment their aim is to convert former end Jabaal Sheard to outside linebacker and Paul Kruger was signed in free agency to man the other starting spot. Though Mingo's production in his three years at LSU was underwhelming, 15 sacks and 29 tackles-for-loss, he does possess the raw athletic potential to become a sack specialist down the road. He's an interesting player to keep an eye on in long-term, dynasty-style formats and he adds an extra element to the Browns' unit for the upcoming season.
