Final New Orleans Saints Mock Draft
15. New Orleans Saints – LB Barkevious Mingo, LSU – Scouting Report
About the Pick: Mingo is one of the most disruptive pass rushers in this class, and has the ability to live in opponents backfields. He’s exceptionally quick off the edge and can give opposing linemen fits. He’s not as strong in coverage and against the run, but he should be able to handle his own. One concern is that the production didn’t always match the talent, but the upside is definitely there.
Steve’s Take: The Saints clearly need some help on defense, and that starts up front. Yes their secondary has gotten torched some, but much of that has to do with allowing too much time in the pocket for the opposing quarterback. Mingo gives them a good edge rusher, who has great upside. While he alone won’t turn it around all on his own, Mingo would be a great start for the Saints.
