Former LSU defensive end Barkevious Mingo is one of the most naturally talented pass rushers in the 2013 NFL Draft class. In a league where top-notch pass rushers are highly coveted, this spells out great news for the SEC standout.
Mingo has been discussed as a top ten talent, with multiple landing spots in the upper third of the draft, but know there is some growing chatter that Mingo could go as high as No. 4 overall to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Per Jason La Canfora:
For all of the chatter about the Eagles and Dion Jordan, for obvious reasons, I keep hearing more and more about Mingo in that 4th pick

Mingo is one of the few prospects that has not heard their name associated with negative criticism just before the draft.
Teams love that Mingo is not a distraction in the locker room and his film speaks for itself.
There is no such thing as a guarantee in the NFL Draft, but it certainly looks like Mingo is a top ten lock for Thursday.
