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:

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.
