Defensive End/Outside LB, 6-foot-4, 241 pounds
Louisiana State University
Mingo doesn’t need an introduction to WWLTV.com’s readership. A game-changer in high school at West Monroe and a game-changer in college at LSU, Mingo could slip down to his home state team and be a game-changer in the pros.
Though some may feel like Mingo underachieved at LSU, he was surrounded by NFL talent and didn’t see the playing time he likely would have at other schools. And he still finished with 15 career sack and 29 tackles for a loss.
Mingo ran one of the top 40-yard dashes for his position at a 4.58 and has a 37-inch vertical leap, all good attributes for a 3-4 defense. He showed his most versatility as a redshirt sophomore, dropping back as a linebacker at times while rushing the quarterback from the defensive end position, where he had a team-high 11 quarterback pressures.
